2013 Australian Derby Tips

It’s one of the most prestigious races on the calendar and there will be plenty of eyes on race 7 at Randwick on Saturday when 10 three-year-olds contest the $1.5 million Group 1 2013 Australian Derby (2400m).

New Zealand colt It’s A Dundeel is the raging favourite at $1.25 after producing outstanding lead-up form but there remains a slight query over his ability at the 2400m trip.

His main challenger appears to be Victorian colt Philippi ($7) who is backing up seven days after winning the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes and is the only other runner under double figures.

Also in the Australian Derby market are Tulloch runner-up Hippopus ($15), Alister Clark Stakes winner Hvasstan ($17) and the Darley-owned Solemn ($34).

Can’t work out who to back in the time-honoured staying test? Keep reading for the expert selections from the team at Races.com.au.
