Two-Word 2013 Australian Derby Form Guide

Set to light-up the tack as Randwick Race 7 at 3:50pm (AEST) this year’s $1.5 million Group 1 David Jones Australian Derby (2400m) features a relatively small field of just 10 hopefuls with hot favourite It’s A Dundeel scaring off the bulk of the contenders.

The race was originally being spruiked as an ace showdown between Randwick – Rosehill Guineas double champion It’s A Dundeel and last Saturday’s The BMW winner Fiveandahalfstar but after the latter was withdrawn with an injury, Murray Baker’s New Zealand raider is set to jump the shortest priced Australian Derby betting favourite in history.

Currently paying $1.25 in the Australian Derby odds It’s A Dundeel really does look the rank horse here and the one to beat.

But is there any chance of an upset from the likes of the Tulloch Stakes quinella Phillipi ($7) and Hippopus ($15)?

To save you time scrolling through the race field and history below we’ve concisely summed up the chances of all 10 horses in the mix to uncover where the value is at this Derby Day.

  • #1 IT’S A DUNDEEL ($1.25) – Triple Crown
  • #2 HVASSTAN ($17.00) – Alister Champ
  • #3 PHILIPPI ($7) – Second Place
  • #4 SOLEMN ($34) – 2200m Winner
  • #5 HIPPOPUS ($15) – Gai’s Runner
  • #6 BASS STRAIT ($101) – Could Surprise
  • #7 GERONTIUS ($41) – Can Improve
  • #8 KINGDOMS ($51) – Will Fall
  • #9 HIGH SHOT ($34) – Right Breeding
  • #10 BLOODBUZZ OHIO ($201) – If Wet
