Victoria Derby Odds

Victoria Derby odds are some of the most sought-after Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival markets each year and are those prices offered on the runners and potential runners in the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m).

Held on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, which takes place on the Saturday before the Melbourne Cup, the Victoria Derby is a staying showdown for the season’s best long-distance three-year-olds.

When checking out the current year’s Victoria Derby odds on your selections, make sure you consider the Victoria Derby form guide and betting history for tips on who to back and who to sack.

For example, since 2006 there has been just one Victoria Derby favourite to salute for the punters with Tarzino (2015).

A number of Victoria Derby winners in the past decade have also jumped at double and even triple figure starting prices in the Victoria Derby odds for example: Fiveandahalfstar ($40 in 2012) and Rebel Raider ($100 in 2008).

Futures Victoria Derby Odds

Futures or ante-post Victoria Derby odds are those all-in Victoria Derby betting markets open at bookmakers including Ladbrokes.com.au before the official Victoria Derby field is released.

The prices on offer are for possible runners and until they are confirmed for the race, their Victoria Derby odds are usually very generous.

There are no guarantees and no money back however, so if the horse you back in the pre-field Victoria Derby markets doesn’t run, you don’t get any return or refund.

Still, it can be worth checking out early pricing on proven gallopers that run well in traditional Victoria Derby lead-up races like the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) held a week earlier, which last produced a VRC Derby winner in Tarzino (3rd in 2015).

The early Victoria Derby odds open weeks in advance of the race so keep an eye out this spring.
