There’s short-priced favourites in most of the of the big Derby Day features but those looking for an open betting race should tune into the Group 3 2013 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on Saturday.
Current favourite is Toydini ($3) who has benefited from a gelding operation and flew home to win the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes last month.
But there are plenty of gallopers close in betting including Gerald Ryan’s filly Flying Snitzel ($4.80) who is slightly ahead of in-form horses Tatra ($5) and Ninth Legion ($5.50).
Other horses in Carbine Club Stakes contention include Bart Cummins’ gelding Lunar Rise ($9) and the Chris Waller-trained Hawkspur ($15).
