Solemn Out of Victoria Derby Field 2012

Peter Snowden’s promising Geelong Classic winner Solemn has officially been withdrawn from 2012 Victoria Derby contention and will be spelled immediately after suffering from a high temperature on Tuesday morning.

The nicely-bred Bernardini colt from Galileo mare Mead scored just their second career success from eight starts last Wednesday when running away to put a minimum one and a quarter lengths on their rivals in the Listed Geelong Classic (2200m).


Fiveandahalfstar is in doubt for the 2012 Victoria Derby due to travel issues

The victory saw them soar up the markets for this Saturday’s $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington Racecourse, Solemn the $6 second favourite behind beaten Moonee Valley Vase favourite It’s A Dundeel ($2.80).

Snowden however has decided not to press ahead with a Victoria Derby 2012 bid this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with Solemn due to their high temperature.

There are also doubts surrounding the acceptance of the Anthony Cummings-trained Fiveandahalfstar for the Victoria Derby field on Wednesday due to travel issues surrounding the in-form Hotel Grand gelding.

Fiveandahalfstar posted their second win on the trot at Rosehill over the weekend with an easy three length victory over 1800m, but a delay travelling from Sydney to Melbourne could see them saved for an easier assignment on Crown Oaks Day Thursday week, the $150,000 Listed Batman Handicap (1800m).

Fiveandahalfstar was paying $19 in the Victoria Derby odds on Monday before the withdrawal of Solemn.
