Delicacy Leads WATC Derby 2015 Betting Odds

Grant Williams’ classy young filly Delicacy is well-supported to beat home the boys in Group 2 company at Ascot Racecourse this weekend in Perth’s feature race – the 2015 WATC Derby.

Due to jump as Ascot Race 7 at 4:20pm (local time), this year’s $400,000 Group 2 Schweppes W.A.T.C. Derby (2400m) features a final field of a dozen three-year-olds.

There are four fillies in the mix for the WATC Derby win this year including the current favourite at even money Delicacy ($2).

Perth’s premier hoop William Pike has the mount on the flying daughter of Al Maher after the duo combined to win the Group 3 W.A. Oaks (2400m) over the same track and distance on March 28.

Delicacy jumped odds-on favourite in the Oaks and lived up to the hype with a comprehensive two and a half length win to make it three on the trot having also taken out the Listed 1000 Guineas (1800m) and the Listed Natasha Stakes (2200m) at Ascot this season.

Now she faces the colts and geldings in her first Group 2 start, the inside alley and Pike’s rebooking boosting the bookies’ confidence in her for the win.

Just two of Delicacy’s 11 rivals are also at single figures to take out the lucrative WA feature with Boom Time ($5) and Spectacular Vision ($8.50) drawn at opposite ends of the field with barriers four and 12 respectively.

Shaun McGruddy has the ride on the Trevor Andrews-trained Boom Time who comes off a winning the Listed Melvista Stakes (2200m) at Ascot on March 28.

The Flying Spur colt had one and three quarter lengths to spare over second-past-the-post Say Geronimo in the Melvista, an effort he’s out to repeat over 200m further when shooting for just his second win at start number 14.

Peter Moody’s visiting Melbourne-trained Mastercraftsman filly Spectacular Vision meanwhile has her second Perth run this weekend after the grey ran second to Delicacy in the WA Oaks in her black-type debut.

At more generous double figure quotes but not without claims are then the likes of Wally Mitchell’s Melvista Stakes runner-up Say Geronimo ($10), the Lou Luciani-trained fourth in that race Tonto ($11) and Quite Regal ($12) for Adam Durrant who also comes via the Melvista when third in the classic Derby lead-up.
