Survived Still 2013 Queensland Derby Betting Favourite

A shock loss on Australian debut hasn’t dented the chances of New Zealand three-year-old Survived in next month’s Group 1 2013 Queensland Derby (2400m).

Well, at least according to the bookmakers who still have the the exciting prospect on the top line of betting in the  Queensland Derby market.

The John Bary-trained galloper is considered a $3.70 chance despite going down to Hawkspur by three lengths in the Rough Habit plate at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The son of Zed arrived in Australia with plenty of hype surrounding him after winning his four previous starts.

Many experts blamed a poor decision by jockey Jonathan Riddell to look for an inside run for his defeat on Saturday and are predicting him to improve with extra distance in the Derby.

Hawkspur’s big Rough Habit Plate win has seen him rocket up the Derby market and he is now equal second favourite at $7 with Gai Waterhouse-trained colt Hippopus.

Hippopus won the VRC St leger by three lengths at his last start but a clearer assessment of his ability can be made after Saturday when he takes on the older horses in the Group 1 Doomben Cup.

Also under double figures is Murray Baker-trained gelding Usainity who is considered a $9 chance.

Usainity was second to Survived in the Manawatu Classic in March and has shown strong form since arriving in Australia.

The Zed gelding won the Frank Packer Plate in Sydney and trailed home Hawkspur and Survived for third in the Rough Habit Plate.

Others featuring towards the top of Queensland Derby market are Gold Coast Bracelet winner Express Power ($11) and Peter Moody’s Prince Jester ($11).
