Our Desert Warrior to Get 2012 Victoria Derby Test at Warwick Farm

Gai Waterhouse-trained colt Our Desert Warrior will continue his road to the 2012 Victoria Derby when he has just the second start of his career at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

The three-year-old is a brother to multiple Group 1 winner Desert War and impressed first-up when winning a maiden at Kembla Grange by 1 1/2 lengths.

Waterhouse has always had a big wrap on the emerging stayer and wrote in her blog last week that tomorrow’s hitout will be his final Sydney test before being thrown into Melbourne’s spring carnival.

“[He] will take a stack of beating over the 1600m journey,” Waterhouse said.

“After that he’ll be on the float and down to Melbourne on a Victoria Derby path.

Stable foreman Mark Newnham likened the youngster to Desert War at a similar age as well as half-brother Laser Hawk.

“I would say he measures right up at the same stage,” Newnham said.

Our Desert Warrior has drawn barrier three for tomorrow’s Super Saver Handicap (1600m) where he will be ridden by Waterhouse number one jockey Nash Rawiller.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained youngster is currently rated an $11.00 chance to win the Victoria Derby next month along with stablemate Kabayan.

The standout favourite is New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel ($2.80) who is unbeaten and was particularly impressive when defeating odds-on favourite Proisir in the Spring Champion Stakes on Saturday.

He is the only horse under $11.00 with Hvasstan, Honorius and Philippi all joining the Waterhouse-trained pair on the second line of betting.

Others toward the top end of the Victoria Derby market include All Too Hard ($12.00), Proverb ($12.00) and Solemn ($17.00).
