2019 Queensland Derby Field: Re Edit Firms After Barrier Draw

The Chris Waller-trained Re Edit is the big market mover to salute at Eagle Farm on Saturday in the Queensland Derby 2019 field after coming up trumps with a favourable barrier nine draw.

Due to run as Eagle Farm Race 7 at 2:55pm (AEST) on Stradbroke Handicap Day, this year’s Group 1 $600,000 Channel 7 Queensland Derby (2400m) attracted a capacity field of 18 starters plus five emergencies.

Waller has two final acceptors in the mix with the current favourite in Queensland Derby betting at Ladbrokes.com.au Nobu ($4.60) and the firmer Re Edit ($10 into 8).

Camelot filly Re Edit is one of four fillies confirmed a run against the colts and geldings in the Queensland Derby field, out to be the first female winner of the race since Dariana back in 2010.

She is drawn in barrier nine but could come into seven with the emergencies out, jockey James McDonald booked for the ride.

Re Edit is on the quick back-up having raced at Doomben just last Saturday.

She did not run in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) however, instead she took on the older gallopers at WFA and finished a very brave third behind dual Group 1 winner Kenenda in the Group 2 P.J. O’Shea Stakes (2200m).

The decision not to run Re Edit against her own kind in the Group 1 last Saturday could be described as the Oaks that got away from Waller, the master trainer having prepared last year’s winner Youngstar who backed-up and ran third in the 2018 Queensland Derby.

Nobu meanwhile has retained top spot in the Queensland Derby odds despite the in-form son of Reliable Man drawing wide in gate 13.

Over the 2400m there is plenty of time for the gun grey to overcome the alley, Nobu chasing his third win on the trot having last been seen on May 25 at Randwick saluting in a BM74 for three-year-olds over 2000m.

The close second favourite in Derby markets at $5 to atone for a last start loss as the beaten favourite in the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) at Morphettville is Mr Quickie.

Trainer Phillip Stokes has been over the moon with the Shamus Award gelding since the SA Derby third on May 11, Mr Quickie to be ridden by the flying Irishman John Allen from barrier five on the weekend.

Last of the single-figure Derby hopefuls in 2019 at $6.50 is the widely-drawn filly Scarlet Dream out in barrier 16 as she looks to make-up for the unplaced Group 2 The Roses (2000m) run last time out.

Sydney trainer Mark Newnham is training plenty of winners this season and is confident his daughter of Sebring could be the next on Saturday getting a roomier track at Eagle Farm second-up.

Runner-up in Randwick’s Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) back in April, Scarlet Dream ran seventh in The Roses at Doomben but was only 2.5 lengths off the winner from a wide barrier on the tight course.

Other notable Queensland Derby horses include the Grand Prix Stakes winner Fun Fact ($15) in barrier six, SA Derby runner-up Savvy Oak ($16) close to the rails in gate two and Team Snowden’s improving So You Think colt Carif ($11) in barrier 14.
