Apart from the obvious Its a Dundeel and Hvasstan ....... has anybody got any other horses worth keeping an eye out for the race ?View all 165 comments
yer i am only talking about colts ... i seen the best female sprinters win the oaks super cool won the vase last week moonee valley over 2000m flemington over 2500m are is a different race...
2000m isnt a staying distance. big difference to add another 500 m. i think flem has a slight inclining rise as well. its a true staying test
Yes that can be the case but also onElectric fusions dam's side silken Song, the 2nd & 3rd Dam Star Of Persia and Tant both won at 2400
2000m is a good distance for these 3yrolds, everyhorse has it's chance here...Supercool ran a good sectional in the last 400m but i still like Hvasstan
It's A Dundeel should win.
on three legs
Sportsbet is offering winning margin betting...for the Derby, 2 lengths or more is $3.50...any opinions....(i'm on)
An interesting proposition ...... It's A Dundeel has a good chance of winning this by more than 2 lengths providing he does not leave his run too late .
If IAD produces his best he wins by around 4lengths plus...if he fails (for some reason ie breaks down) then one of the others may put 2 lens on the others.....its a long long straight for those younsters....esp after 2500m.............
ive been following posts on here for a quite a while, not a very active contributor myself because I dont rate my own insights haha, but this is the most confident I have seen the vast majority of punters on here in any race, so I am unloading on this one.
One question I like to ask myself is. If I was a jockey and was offered any horse to ride in a race, who would I ride? I would definently be choosing IAD in the Derby.
Rancho ..you will love my profile pic ..hahaha
Phew , too early mate to be looking at such a fine specimen !! She's a cracker , IAD has just gone to odds on in my book and now I can't concentrate on the form ....The Guide that is lol ..
wowsers thanks for the heads up on the strapper guys, im at the track today so will definately be keeping my eye out ;P
Yeah for those listening to the media (eg Brett Davison) ... they are just leading you up the garden path. Dundeel will show his best and will win.
timm1602...just be aware ,,,,the VRC Derby is a bit like the Bermuda Triangle...a lot of strange things happen...
Most of us agree that if IAD ...thats IF.....reproduces his Sydney form he will win...its as simple as that.....
There is not a lot of the speed in the race and IAD will be ridden back .... hahaha, now I am second guessing myself.
Just looking at the breeding in case IAD runs erratic as he is capable of and Fiveandahalfstar, Bullion Express, Our Desert Warrior would be brought into contention.
Hard to go past IAD tho.
Hard to go past IAD tho.
Sportsbet are offering money back if you back It's A Dundeel to win and it runs second. Must be your first bet in the race and max $100 bet
Got $7 for IAD to win by 2 lengths with Bookmaker.com.au just last night
well the fastnet rock 3yo's performed much better than most of the otherfancied horses.,being 2nd 4th and 5th.Yeah and that was the box tri I took , The winner did outstay them though helped by a great ride by Olllie and Rawnaq was avery good run for 3rd. I think its only a matter of time until a Fastnet Rock wins the Derby
just me or did james not look happy on IAD before the race?
got whacked on the derby..a day to quickly forget. thank god for nechita and appearence
hawkeye jsut flummoxed by the result. the greeding as well. winner sired by hotel grand. but trainer is a cummings..so i shd have known
till i just read the breeding..fark related to zipping
