A Victoria Derby First Four bet can be one of the most lucrative in the Spring Racing Carnival due to the heavy betting and difficulty of picking the bet correctly. For those new to exotic bets, a First Four bet requires you to pick the first four finishers in exact order. You must get the horses and their order correct for the bet to pay.

The $1.5 million Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) runs at Flemington Racecourse on the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup held on the first Tuesday of November and is open to three-year-old stayers.

As it is a three-year-old restricted race, picking the Victoria Derby First Four can be easier than on an open-age spring race, especially when you look at the Victoria Derby form guide provided at a bookmaker like

For example, the winning 2017 Victoria Derby First Four bet was:

1st – Ace High ($7F)
2nd – Sully ($7.50)
3rd – Astoria ($8)
4th – Pissaro ($51)

Remember that the exact order was necessary for this bet to win, so if say Astoria had run second instead of third, the bet wouldn’t have paid out.

How To Pick The Victoria Derby First Four

First of all, it is highly recommended that you place a box Victoria Derby First Four bet rather than just a single First Four. This will make picking a winning Victoria Derby First Four much easier, as you will be far less vulnerable to the vicissitudes of fate. A box First Four covers all combinations of your selected horses, so that finishing order is no longer a problem.

Research is necessary to narrow down your selections. The maximum number of selections you include will depend on your budget, the runners in the Victoria Derby field and the profitability of certain combinations.

When deciding on the horses you will back in your Victoria Derby First Four, there are a few things you can consider in addition to the factors that would influence any other race.

First of all, make sure you include any of the runners in the Moonee Valley Vase the week before. Moonee Valley Vase participants have had an excellent record in the Victoria Derby.

You will want to avoid fillies for the most part, though you can still include outstanding fillies with the knowledge that they will most likely just take a place. It has been a very long time since a filly has won the Victoria Derby.

Breeding can also be a factor in a race like the Victoria Derby. As it is for 3 year olds, few of the runners will have raced the 2500 metre Victoria Derby distance before. If a horse’s sire was a previous Victoria Derby winner and they have proven they have staying power over 2000 metres, then they could play a part in your Victoria Derby First Four.

Where To Place Your Victoria Derby First Four Bet

We recommend you place your Victoria Derby First Four bet at an online betting site, as it is easier and more convenient than going to a land-based bookie. We suggest using a site like, which has an incredibly intuitive user interface.

The main advantage of using an online betting site is better odds and safe collection of winnings, however. You can benefit from very generous Victoria Derby First Four odds when you bet online, and if you win your account will simply be credited directly with your winnings, which you can withdraw by various means.
