Victorians dominate SA Derby market

Tue, May 9, 4:01pm by Senior Writer

Group 1 racing this weekend takes place in two states, with the running of the South Australian Derby in Adelaide and Doomben 10,000 in Brisbane.

The market for the South Australian Derby sees Victorian-trained Odeon a clear $3.40 favourite off his strong last start win at Caulfield and Sportsbet have reported they have had twice as much money for him than any other horse.

With that volume of betting behind him and having drawn an ideal barrier (5), he is likely to shorten over the coming days, with fellow Victorian Netherfield, trained by Mick Price and ridden by Damien Oliver, who combined to win last week’s Robert Sangster Classic, second pick at $6.50.

Ciaron Maher’s Ruthven, who was fourth in the Australian Derby, is third in the market at $7.50, level with Darren Weir’s Volatile Mix, who will be ridden by John Allen.

Weir and Allen combined to win the race last year, while the record-breaking trainer also has another runner in Rockstar Rebel, who is currently first emergency, and is $9.

There is a capacity field of 16 plus four emergencies for the $600,000 race with Waging War ($10) and Grand Chancellor ($13) considered the best chance of the local hopes.

The Doomben 10,000 (1200m) is the first of the feature sprints of the Brisbane carnival, and Russian Revolution is $3.30 favourite, with Music Magnate is $7 and Fell Swoop is $7.50.

Russian Revolution won the Group 1 Galaxy at Rosehill in March before being beaten five lengths in the TJ Smith, while Music Magnate, who won this race when it was over 1350m last year, won the Victory Stakes at Eagle Farm at his most recent start.

Weir’s pair Voodoo Lad and Black Heart Bart won run in the race and will be reserved for other races in Brisbane and Adelaide respectively.
