2015 Tasmanian Derby Field Features Geegees Baritone

Leon & Dean Wells’ improving three-year-old Geegees Baritone is one of the headline acceptors into the Tasmanian Derby 2015 field for Friday’s twilight meeting at Hobart Racecourse.

The in-form Wordsmith gelding is one of 10 final acceptors for this year’s $100,000 Listed Schweppes Tasmanian Derby (2200m), the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival showdown to run as Race 6 at 6:52pm (local) time on Friday evening.

Drawn well mid-field in barrier five for apprentice jockey Ismail Toker, Geegees Baritone won at Launceston over 1400m in a Class 1 two back by two lengths before a last start second to Rose Of Innocence back at the track but over a mile on January 28.

He is up in distance notably for the 2200m of the Derby then but is likely to be well liked in the Ladbrokes.com.au markets to handle the increase in metres successfully.

Also in flying form coming off back-to-back wins is the Dylan Clark-trained Just Run, a Luke Currie mount drawn wide in barrier nine.

The Savoire Vivre colt won at Launceston over 1400m two back and then again to break his Hobart maiden over the 1600m on January 25 where he overcame barrier 13 of 13.

A host of Tasmanian Derby hopes have been tested in much tougher company this summer including Written Tycoon gelding Calavera for Spreyton’s Barry Campbell.

He ran a credible fifth to his star stablemate Admiral in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) on January 11 before failing to fire in the wet last start when walking home over 24 lengths off the winner Warrior Of Fire in the Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m).

The best performer in the Hobart Guineas backing-up in the Derby is then the Gary White-trained Shiralee in gate three for Dean Yendall this Friday night.

The Stratum gelding was only just nudged out of the Guineas win last start when a nose off the winner, Yendall also aboard that day, and is sure to be well liked to improve by one when stepped up an extra 100m for the Derby.

Also coming via a nice run in the Hobart Guineas is fourth placegetter Valdez who was beaten two and a half lengths.

A nicely-bred son of Sebring, the Graeme McCulloch & David Keating-trained Valdez has had five previous starts at Hobart but is yet to run top three.

His Guineas run was brave though and with Anthony Darmanin retaining the ride from barrier three they are a genuine hope.

Other notable chances include Melbourne raider Dandy Gent coming off a fourth over 2040m at Moonee Valley from January 24 and All Wrapped Up for Longford’s Ken & Tanya Hanson.
