2016 Australian Derby Betting: Tarzino Approaches Odds-On

Mick Price’s gun three-year-old stayer Tarzino is approaching odds-on territory in the Australian Derby 2016 betting markets for Saturday at Royal Randwick after his smart Rosehill Guineas win last time out.

A final field of 13 contest this season’s $2 million Group 1 BMW Australian Derby (2400m), the line-up and latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au led by Tavistock colt Tarzino.

He won the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington in the spring and is back up to a similar distance for the first time since on the weekend.

Paying $2 to take out Sydney’s mile and a half classic on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’, Tarzino scored his second elite level win last time out posting a nearly two length victory in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m).

Jockey Craig Newitt continues his association with the in-form galloper on the weekend and jumps from barrier six, which last produced an Australian Derby winner in Headturner (2006) as Tarzino attempts the Rosehill Guineas – ATC Derby double last achieved by Criterion (2014).

Favourites have won two of the past three editions of the event and following Tarzino in the latest Australian Derby odds this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival are three other single figure hopes.

At $6.50 each are co-second favourites Tally and Jameka drawn in barriers nine and 12 respectively.

Tally is in flying form for the Godolphin stable, the John O’Shea-trained son of Street Cry shooting for his fifth consecutive win.

He was last seen taking out Melbourne’s Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at Moonee Valley and sees Randwick for the first time on Saturday.

His record stands at nine starts for five wins and two seconds so far, with the Derby his first test over the 2400m.

Drawn in barrier nine, Tally has James McDonald aboard after his second win after riding It’s A Dundeel (2013) to victory three years ago.

Jameka is the sole filly in the mix this season, the last female Australian Derby winning three-year-old being Shamrocker (2011).

Shamrocker won the race after a third in that year’s Rosehill Guineas, the same form the Ciaron Maher-trained Jameka brings into the Derby on the weekend.

Winner of the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Maher’s impressive daughter of Myboycharlie was beaten only two lengths by Tarzino in her lead-up run from barrier 14 of 14.

She’s drawn wide again, but jockey Damien Oliver knows the filly well and her adaptability has her well positioned to finish in the money once more.

Rounding out the hopes under $10 is the Chris Waller-trained Vanbrugh ($9.50), a Hugh Bowman mount drawn in gate eight.

Barrier eight is the most successful draw in recent years with three of the past six Australian Derby winners jumping from the gate: Shoot Out (2010), Shamrocker (2011) and It’s A Dundeel (2013).

Bowman won aboard the David Payne-trained Criterion (2014) two years back and shoots for a second on Waller’s Encosta De Lago colt who ran fourth in the Rosehill Guineas and is after a maiden win since his Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) triumph last October.

Outside of the top four the next best fancied to score an upset Australian Derby result are O’Shea’s Victoria Derby runner-up Etymology ($15), early market mover Torgersen ($15) for Waller who ran second to Old North in last weekend’s Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) and the Kiwi raider What’s The Story ($15) in his down under debut following a Group 1 NZ Derby (2400m) second last time out.
