St Ledger Win Seals 2014 SA Derby Deal for Order Of The Sun

Gai Waterhouse’s improving young stayer Order Of The Sun sealed their spot at the top of the pre-field SA Derby 2014 odds over the weekend with their all-too-easy ANZAC Day win at Flemington.

The Encosta De Lago colt is one of 41 three-year-olds nominated for this Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m) at Morphettville, a race they’re tipped to win after their last start success in Melbourne.

After two failed Rosehill runs over 2000m this season, Order Of The Sun thrived against an easier field over more ground when racing in the $150,000 Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) on Friday.

They and dual Group 1 winning jockey Chad Schofield relished the assignment and ate up the ground to beat home the favourite  Honey Steel’s Gold by a blistering seven lengths in the ST Leger.

John Sadler’s last start Caulfield winner Throw The King was then a further three lengths away for third in the day’s feature.

All-the-way winner Order Of The Sun is now Adelaide-bound for this Saturday’s South Australian Derby 2014 where Schofield believes they will be very hard to run down with improvement still to come.

“He really travelled strongly, every time I asked him to pick up, he did and he gave me a bit more too,” Schofield told Adelaide Now of the colt’s VRC St Ledger performance.

“He was very strong to the line and he wouldn’t have blown a candle out after the race.

“He was very well prepared for that distance and he’ll be very hard to beat in the Derby.

“I think he does have enough brilliance to match it with the stronger three-year-olds.”

A jockey change will be on the cards for Order Of The Sun this weekend however with Schofield to miss the ride due to suspension.

Bookies around the country reacted accordingly on Friday and now have Order Of The Sun at the top of the SA Derby markets to win their Adelaide maiden.

The next best in early betting is then another visitor, Cranbourne-based Sebring gelding Bring Something who will be after their third on the trot.

After a six and a half length success over 2025m at home in late March, Bring Something thrived at Caulfield last time out on April 12 winning the Listed Galilee Series Final (2400m) by two lengths.

It’s then a logjam in the futures South Australian betting odds with a plethora of live wire chances jostling for position including the Anthony Cummings-trained Best Case and local hope Gamblin’ Guru who won the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes over the weekend.

Fancy a bet on the SA Derby this weekend but don’t know where to go for the best odds?
