2015 South Australian Derby Late Mail

Emergencies have been removed from the list and a final field of 16 has been confirmed for this afternoon’s featured Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) at Morphettville; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Perth raider Delicacy produced an impressive turn of foot in the final straight to win last weekend’s Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) and has understandably been backed into clear favouritism in 2015 South Australian Derby betting markets as a result, currently featured at a quote of $2.70.

Delicacy more than stamped her claims as one to watch over a strong Perth summer campaign but has found incredible form since returning to racing this time.

Running third in the Listed Make Your Own Magic Challenge (1500m) on February 14th, the daughter of Al Maher has since not looked like losing; taking out each of the Listed Ascot 1000 Guineas (1800m), Listed Natasha Stakes (2000m), Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) and Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) on her way to last weekend’s triumph.

While needing some luck from barrier 11, Delicacy will carry a race-low 54.5kgs and is sure to be given a good ride from last start hoop Peter Hall.

Interestingly, only two other runners are currently available at a quote of less-than $10 in 2015 SA Derby betting markets; the Nigel Blackiston-trained Manapine and classy local October Date.

A proven performer over the distance, Manapine has steadily built to the task and is primed for 2015 SA Derby success having overcome a forgettable run for tenth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) with a sixth place finish in the Fleming’s Nurseries BM64 (2000m) and success in the Listed Galilee Series Final (2500m) on April 1tth.

Allocated the ideal barrier 5, Manapine is sure to receive a gem of a ride from leading hoop Dwayne Dunn this afternoon.

October Date has received an ideal lead-in to the 2015 South Australian Derby but is yet to be tested at the distance of a mile and a half or more.

Posting three wins and one minor through six career starts, the Barely A Moment gelding ran second in a Morphettville minor over a mile first-up; taking out another by more than four lengths a fortnight later before placing fourth in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) and winning the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2020m) on course most recently.

Peter Moody-trained Triple Gold ($21) and local Maysoor ($17) have both firmed in 2015 South Australian Derby betting markets over the last few hours while Magicool ($14), Boom Time ($21) and Cuban Fighter ($26) continue to drift.
