While the form, stats, history and common sense all say to back these shorties there will be plenty of punters out there looking for more value when it comes to placing their bets on the Royal Randwick majors.

This is where bookmaker.com.au and their Australian exclusive Pick Your Own Odds markets come in.

  • Black Caviar paying $2.75 to win her 25th consecutive start and race into the history books yet again in the $1 million Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m)?
  • Overreach out of odds-on territory to back-up from her super Slipper triumph to salute in the $500,000 Group 1 Inglis ATC Sires Produce Stakes (1400m)?
  • It’s A Dundeel paying nearly $4 to complete the Autumn 3YO Triple Crown with a victory in the lucrative $1.5 million Group 1 David Jones Australian Derby (2400m)?

These awesome Australian Derby Day odds and many more are available only to bookmaker.com.au punters.

All you have to do is select the Randwick race you want to have a punt on, pick your favourite and then select the margin by which you think they will get the job done to improve their fixed win price.

In the last this afternoon Peter Moody’s undefeated champion Black Caviar will look to surpass the Group 1 winning record of 14 victories she currently co-holds with the great Kingston Town when she tackles Sydney for the first time in the TJ Smith Stakes since winning the race 24 months ago.

Standard TJ Smith Stakes markets have her at $1.12 to win but she mowed Hay List down in his prime to win by over three lengths two years ago and if you think she can do that again here you can bet on her at $2.75!

It’s the same for Gai Waterhouse’s flying filly Overreach.

Market mover in the fifth in from $1.60 to $1.55 to become the 14th two-year-old to complete the Slipper – Sires autumn double there is no other place aside from bookmaker.com.au to find her at $2 or more, and to get her at $2.15 winning by more than one and a quarter lengths really doesn’t seem too much of a stretch.

And then there’s the shortest-priced Australian Derby favourite in quarter of a century, flying Kiwi It’s A Dundeel at $1.25 to win.

They come off two good wins in the Randwick Guineas and Rosehill Guineas, their average winning margin being three and three quarter lengths.

It was seven in the Rosehill edition last time out and so selecting him to win by more than 3 ¾ lengths today will have you laughing all the way to the bank at $3.80 fixed win!
