The Victoria Derby is one of the most popular races of the year and Victoria Derby betting is big business!

The 2,500-metre Group 1 event is held at Flemington Racecourse – home of the Melbourne Cup three days later on the first Tuesday of November – and is open to three-year-old horses. As one of the opening events of the four-day Melbourne Cup Racing Carnival, it should come as no surprise to learn that Victoria Derby betting is extremely popular and is available months in advance of race day.

The Victoria Derby was first run in 1855, and over the decades has seen the very best horses, jockeys, and trainers win the crown. Champion thoroughbred Phar Lap won the event in 1929, while Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Damien Oliver has won the Victoria Derby on Amalfi, Elvstroem and saluted in the race’s 2014 aboard Preferment. Read on to find out all about Victoria Derby betting and how you can win big during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Victoria Derby Betting Tips

Stay tuned for our insider Victoria Derby 2021 betting tips to be detailed below the week of the race.

  • To Win: #1 Forgot You ($3.60 at time of publish) 

The Vase form has been the one to follow into the Derby historically and this son of Savabeel was good late running down the tearaway 100/1 leader (stablemate Commander Harry) to win. Think with more distance he’ll be even more dominant and happy to stick with that form-line. He’s been set for this since the Stutt Stakes win, is drawn well and looking to win his way to a Melbourne Cup start here.

  • Danger: #2 Tutukaka ($9 at time of publish) 

The Geelong Classic win by this Tony Pike-trained Kiwi over 2200m was impressive and no doubts he’ll handle the trip. Looks to be improving each run, is a son of gun staying sire Tavistock and faces an acid test here. He stays, but has he the class? There’s big money rolling in for him as he’s backed in from double-figures so might be worth following that money trail.

  • Each Way: #3 Alegron ($9 at time of publish) 

What an open edition of the Derby! One of the other horses at single-figures is this Godolphin-raced Teofilo gelding coming off a totally different form line. He’s had two goes at HQ without a top three run, but that could change on Saturday with Brett Prebble riding so well and coming aboard. Latest run for third in Sydney’s Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) was eye-catching and that form line has been very good.

  • Best Roughie: #7 Jungle Magnate ($17 at time of publish) 

Stablemate Gunstock is second-elect and much better fancied, but going out on a limb and suggesting Jungle Magnate is the potential value in this year’s Derby. He flashed from the back to nab third in the Moonee Valley Vase last weekend and should relish the rise in distance. Has placed on a Soft track so could be one of the surprise finishers that best handles the going.

Our Victoria Derby Tips page also has all the historical betting facts and stats on previous Victoria Derby winners and the best way to bet on the three-years-old classic each Spring Carnival.

2021 Victoria Derby Betting Markets

See below for the latest Victoria Derby 2021 betting odds complete with market links to Ladbrokes.com.au.

Victoria Derby Trifecta

Betting on a Victoria Derby trifecta may not be the easiest wager to pull off, but the lucrative payout odds should be more than enough to entice discerning punters. A trifecta is a Victoria Derby betting option that requires you to pick the first three horses over the line in order. Doubtless, this is a difficult task, but there are several Victoria Derby trifecta variations that can be used, such as a three-horse box trifecta, which allows any combination of your three chosen horses as long as they all finish in the top three.

While it is tough to pick the three winning horses in order,watching the best three-year-old stayers in lead-up races like the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase is a top Victoria Derby betting tip to help with your punting.

Victoria Derby Quinella

Another popular Victoria Derby betting method that offers big cash payouts is the quinella. Producing a Victoria Derby quinella is easy to understand and quite simple to pull off if you know your horses. Quinellas are bets that are made by picking the two horses that will finish the race ahead of the rest of the pack. It doesn’t matter which horse finishes first and which second, as long as both selections cross the line in the top two.

Thanks to its popularity, you will be able to make a quinella wager at any top online bookmaker, such as Ladbrokes.com.au. Relative positions do not affect the bet as long as they are first and second.

Victoria Derby Exacta

While some Victory Derby betting fans would prefer the higher chance of a correct pick on a quinella, those looking for something more challenging – and consequently much more lucrative – will enjoy a Victoria Derby exacta. This betting type is similar to a quinella, in that it requires the bettor to pick two horses, but in an exacta the punter must also choose the correct finishing positions.

Victoria Derby First Four

For one of the toughest – and therefore most sought after – wagers in horse racing, you need look no further than a first four. Victoria Derby betting is an increasingly popular attraction, especially at online bookmakers like Ladbrokes.com.au, and exotics continue to play their part in big events.

A Victoria Derby First Four is a lucrative bet that requires the punter to correctly name and order the first four horses past the post. It is basically an extended trifecta, and includes numerous variations that allow bettors to change their betting style. Whether you are interested in a box first four that allows different finishing combinations, or a standard Victoria Derby first four with the best payout odds, you will be able to take advantage of them at an online bookmaker.
