Delicacy Leads Latest South Australian Derby 2015 Betting

Despite a wide barrier draw flying Perth-based filly Delicacy has opened top of the odds to beat home the boys and complete a Group 1 Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival double in Saturday’s 2015 South Australian Derby at Morphettville Racecourse.

A capacity field of three-year-olds is accepted to face off in this year’s $500,000 Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m), which is set to run as Race 7 at 3:53pm on the weekend.

The field was released on Tuesday and updated South Australian Derby odds are now out at who have last Saturday’s Group 1 Australasian Oaks winner over the 2000m at Morphettville, Delicacy installed as the firming favourite.

She opened as long as $4.80 to handle the short seven day back-up and step up in distance, but has been smashed by the punters into $3.20 to become the first South Australian Derby winning filly since Zarita (2008).

Delicacy is drawn in gate 14 for jockey Peter Hall, but has time to overcome the awkward gate as she gets out over 2500m, a distance she should have no issues over having won the WA Oaks – WATC Derby over the mile and a half (2400m) in Perth before her trip east for the Schweppes Oaks last weekend.

Following Delicacy in the latest South Australian Derby betting markets are just three other single figure hopes including co-second elects Manapine and October Date at $6.50 each for the win.

Nigel Blackiston saddles-up his Victorian visitor Manapine in barrier six with Dwayne Dunn retaining the mount after riding the Manhattan Rain gelding to victory at Flemington on April 11 in the Listed Galilee Series Final (2500m) over the same distance he’s up over this weekend.

October Date is also drawn well in gate two for his hoop Shayne Cahill, back aboard the Nick Smart-trained Barley A Moment gelding who won the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2020m) at the track a fortnight ago by a narrow margin.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 for the win is then Magicool ($8.50) in the outside gate, which last produced a South Australian Derby winner in 2010 with Kidnapped saluting from 16 of 16 only five years ago.

Despite the wide gate, the Mark Kavanagh-trained Magicool is still considered a livewire shot at the title with Damien Oliver replacing Joe Bowditch in the saddle of the Fastnet Rock gelding.

Just outside of the top fancies in the markets are a number of other hopes at more generous prices including Andrew Campbell’s New Zealand raider Werther ($12) coming off a Group 2 win back home over 2100m, Pat Carey’s ultra-consistent Domesday gelding All I Survey ($13) coming off a second at Caulfield from last weekend and the John O’Shea-trained Allergic ($15) after his third win on the trot.
