Tasmanian Derby 2015 Odds: Top Three Hard to Split

The bookies are having a hard time separating the top three fancies for the 2015 Tasmanian Derby at Hobart Racecourse’s twilight meeting this Friday evening.

There are 10 three-year-olds engaged in this summer’s $100,000 Listed Schweppes Tasmanian Derby (2200m), the set weights clash to run as Hobart race six at 6:52pm (local time) tomorrow night.

Of the 10 engaged there are four single figure fancies and three very obviously batting for top spot in the Tasmanian Derby betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Currently installed as the $3.60 co-favourites after a market mover on both youngsters are Dandy Gent and Baja Moon.

Drawn in barrier seven with Linda Meech to ride, the Terry & Karina O’Sullivan-trained Savoire Vivre gelding Dandy Gent is over from Melbourne looking to make an impact in his Tassie debut.

His form stepping up in distance back home has been solid with back-to-back fourths in January over 1800m and then 2040m at Sandown and Moonee Valley respectively.

Patrick Payne’s Baja Moon is another Victorian visitor and is drawn well in barrier two with apprentice hoop Jordan Childs in the saddle.

The High Chaparral filly races in Tasmania for the first time having won over the mile at Sale two back before her fifth in a Benchmark 78 over 2040m at Moonee Valley last start on January 24, form that could stack up in the Apple Isle.

Hot on the co-favourites heels’ is then the Gary White-trained Shiralee at $3.70.

The Stratum gelding has an ideal barrier three draw with Dean Yendall to ride the progressive three-year-old who has won just one of his 10 career starts to date.

This time in he’s been up in black-type company in his two lead-up runs when sixth to Admiral in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) on January 11 and then second when only a nose off Warrior OF Fire in the Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) last start on January 25.

Rounding out the single figure hopes in the Tasmanian Derby at a $6.50 quote is then Valdez in barrier four for premiership winning hoop Anthony Darmanin.

A nicely-bred son of Sebring, Valdez also comes via the Tasmanian and Hobart Guineas races finishing seventh and fourth respectively.

Outside those under $10 in betting are then a few other genuine hopes for an upset Tasmanian Derby result including Just Run ($10) after his third on the trot.

Out wider in barrier nine for Friday, the Dylan Clark-trained colt won over 1400m at Launceston in mid-January before another victory last time out this time over the Hobart mile on January 25.

He’s been working his way up in class impressively but Friday will be a tough test in his first stakes race and his first run over further than 1600m, meaning he needs to be improving to get the class and distance.

The other more notable chances are then Wordsmith gelding Geegees Baritone ($12) from Spreyton and the Barry Campbell-trained Calavera ($13) who ran fifth in the Tasmanian Guineas before a disappointing dead last in the Hobart edition that he will be out to atone for here.
