2014 Victoria Derby Target for Temps Voleur

Cranbourne’s Robbie Laing is hoping Temps Voleur is the horse to hand him successive Victoria Derby wins after the up-and-comer won at Sandown-Hillside on Wednesday.

Last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival Laing won the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) with Rakti colt Polanski.

Polanski was forced into an early retirement in February however after returning in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) and running dead last after suffering a career ending tendon injury.

While still saddened over losing Polanski, Laing is now looking ahead to this year’s Derby with renewed confidence thanks to the nice early form of Time Thief colt Temps Voleur who he purchased for $75,000 from last year’s Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.

“It just goes to show in racing that you can’t dwell on the past,” Laing told Racing Victoria on Wednesday.

“It was devastating to lose Polanski to the racecourse but you’ve got to move on and I think we’ve got a potential Spring horse.

“He picked them up and put them away today and I think he’ll continue to do so.”

Temps Voleur debuted at Sandown on June 4 when showing their greenness with a fifth to the Robert Smerdon-trained Lonhro filly Cautious in a two-year-olds’ handicap.

Yesterday however they showed nice improvement when handling a Heavy (8) track back at Sandown to win the $35,000 The Grand Hotel Frankston Handicap (1000m) by three quarters of a length over their last start conqueror.

It was exactly the kind of run Laing had been hoping to see ahead of the Spring from the youngster as they produced a powerful late burst that also impressed jockey Craig Newitt.

“He’ll be the best horse to come out of this meeting,” Newitt said.

“I think he’s very good. He’s still a big baby. He got to the front and then he waited for something to challenge him.

“He gets through the (Heavy) ground but wait until he gets on top the ground.”

Next-up Laing is looking at a run in the next leg of the Taj Rossie Series with the $80,000 Murray Cox Handicap (1400m) at Flemington on June 28 on the cards.

Following that they will be stepped up to stakes’ company for the first time in the $150,000 Listed Taj Rossie Series Final (1600m) back at the track the following fortnight.

After a freshen-up they’ll then return for their three-year-old campaign targeting the Derby on the opening Melbourne Cup Carnival meeting on Saturday November 1.

Futures Victoria Derby betting markets are already open at Ladbrokes.com.au and are led by the Chris Waller-trained Brazen Beau ($11) last seen running second to Almalad, $17 for the Derby, in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 7.

Temps Voleur is yet to be added to those pre-nomination Victoria Derby odds but are sure to enter the picture if they win again at the end of the month.
