2014 Victoria Derby Odds Update

A talented and capacity field of sixteen three-year-olds will contest this afternoon’s featured Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington Racecourse, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Having found exceptional staying form leading into the feature race, Hampton Court has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in Victoria Derby betting markets and is currently available at odds of $2.50 for success with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Securing three wins and a further two places from his nine competitive appearances on course so far, Hampton Court beat just one runner home in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) first-up on August 16th, but quickly found competitive form when placing third behind Sweynesse and subsequent Group 1 winner First Seal in a minor over 1400m on August 30th.

Running a credible fourth in the Group 3 Newcastle Spring Stakes (1600m) on September 17th, the Redoute’s Choice colt is aiming for a third consecutive race win this afternoon having taken out both the Listed Dulcify Quality (1600m) and Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) most recently.

Allocated the somewhat wide barrier 11, punters may find value in adding Hampton Court as a selection in a Victoria Derby trifecta or quinella bet.

While yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of wagers for success in Victoria Derby betting markets, Preferment has maintained status as outright second favourite, but has drifted from opening odds of $5.50 to currently register at a quote of $7.

Unlucky not to win the More Than Ready Plate (1550m) on September 24th, the Zabeel colt ran fourth in a minor over 1600m on October 8th before again placing an agonizingly-close second to Nozomi in the Listed Geelong Classic (2200m) last time out.

Incredibly yet to break through for a race win, Preferment is offered a great chance of breaking his maiden in the best way possible this afternoon; allocated the ideal barrier 6 and confirmed to be partnered by champion jockey Damien Oliver.

Interestingly figuring as the only other runners currently offered at odds of less-than $10 in Victoria Derby betting markets, Moonovermanhattan and Bondeiger arguably offer punters the best value for money at current $8.50 odds each or $2.65 to finish in the places.

Winning the Group 3 Darley National Stakes (1200m) on debut in May, Moonovermanhattan has steadily built to the task over five starts this time in and will carry exceptional form into the Victoria Derby having comfortably taken out the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) last weekend.

Finishing outside the places just once in his five start career so far, Bondeiger undoubtedly faces his biggest test to date in the Victoria Derby and will be aiming to respond to a luckless run for seventh in the Moonee Valley Vase last time out.

Outside chances Royal Standing has firmed significantly from opening odds of $67 to currently rest at a quote of $51, while Lotion, Nozomi and Light Up Manhattan have all drifted noticeably in Victoria Derby betting markets.
