Victoria Derby Odds 2018 - The Autumn Sun heads VRC Derby market

  • Have we seen the Derby winner yet?
Brenton Avdulla on The Autumn Sun wins at Royal Randwick

Chris Waller’s unbeaten colt, The Autumn Sun, has been installed as the early favourite for the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on November 3.

The son of Redoute’s Choice brought up his third consecutive victory in the Group 1 JJ Atkins Plate (1600m), where he worked home strongly to overhaul stablemate Zousain.

Zousain has featured in the all-in markets but isn’t bred to be a stayer, while Steven O'dea’s Sebring colt, Sesar, was rocketing home for 4th in the JJ Atkiins and may be one to watch over further. 

Peter and Paul Snowden’s Champagne Stakes (1600m) runner-up Bondi is being held safe at $16 with Ladbrokes, but punters can do much better with $26 on offer at Sportsbet.

Hawkes Racing has a pair of Champagne Stakes performers that are among the top-rated horses in the early Derby market, with Outrageous (5th) and Irukandji (7th) likely to stretch out over longer during the spring. 

Champagne Stakes 4th placegetter, Guerrier, is also listed in the all-in market, but with sprinter/miler pedigree on both his sire and dam’s side, it’s hard to see him being a genuine Derby contender.

Others in consideration include Kiwi gelding Botti ($26) who is by Melbourne Cup placegetter the Jakkalberry who died earlier this year, unbeaten Sepoy colt Marcel From Madrid, super-impressive Caulfield winner Brutal and Godolphin’s Lonhro colt Plague Stone.
