Darley Classic Odds 2018 - Redzel favourite for sprinting feature

  • Redzel favourite to repeat his 2017 performance 
Redzel wins the 2017 Darley Classic.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Redzel is favourite to produce back-to-back victories in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) which will be run on Saturday, November 10 at Flemington. 

Redzel proved he was Australia’s best sprinter in 2017, winning The Everest (1200m) and the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) in the space of a month. The five-year-old gelding has only one once in his last four starts but has lost no admirers. 

The Godolphin runner Kementari could be a major player in the Darley Classic if trainer James Cummings decides to run him. Cummings has noted the plan is the Missile Stakes first-up into the Memsie Stakes at Caulfield. Cummings believes he is a great Everest type, however, they don’t have a slot, meaning the Darley could be on the radar. 

Nature Strip is the current unknown. He has won three from three down the Flemington straight and oozes ability. Master trainer Darren Weir thinks he is good enough for The Everest, but a slot at this stage is unlikely. 

The Grey Flash Chautauqua is still well in all markets at around the $10-15 quote. I would recommend not taking that price, as a start in the Darley seems unlikely after he failed to jump yet again in a Rosehill barrier trial. 

After two failures overseas, the Lindsay Park team will be targeting the Darley Classic for Redkirk Warrior. David Hayes has spoken about wanting to make the horse a Melbourne specialist. 

Redkirk Warrior has won four races from five starts down the Flemington straight, including three Group 1’s. His only failure was in the 2017 Darley Classic behind Redzel. Those wanting to back to track specialist will get a nice surprise if they look at multiple bookmakers. He is $17-18 with Ladbrokes and Sportsbet, but $26 with Crownbet.
