Kiwis Get Chance to Show 2013 Queensland Derby Credentials

Two of the top 2013 Queensland Derby (2400m) fancies will step out this weekend in the Group 3 2013 Rough Habit Plate (2100m) when the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival kicks off at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Derby favourite Survived will make his Australian debut while Murray Baker’s gelding Usainity will attempt to claim back-to-back Australian victories after winning the Frank Packer Plate at Randwick on April 27.

The John Bary-trained Survived will arrive in Brisbane on Thursday and will attempt to score a fifth consecutive victory this weekend.

Bary, the trainer of 2011 Cox Plate runner-up Jimmy Choux, told AAP the Rough Habit is likely to be his charge’s only lead-up ahead of the Derby on June 8.

“Plan A for him is to run in Saturday’s Rough Habit Plate at Doomben and then in the Queensland Derby four weeks later,” Bary said.

“At this stage he is right where we want him to be for the trip.”

Survived currently heads the Queensland Derby market after producing some outstanding performances in his home country.

The son of Zed has put together back-to-back Group 3 wins including a huge 4 1/2 length romp in the Hawke’s Bay Cup on April 20.

Usainity occupies the third line of Queensland Derby betting at $10 and appears to be the main danger to Survived this weekend.

A winner of four of seven starts the emerging stayer finished less than a length behind the favourite when second in the Group 3 Manawatu Classic in March.

Among the top chances taking on the Kiwi pair this weekend is Honorius who finished second behind Usainity in the Frank Packer Plate.
