The 2014 Victoria Derby, sponsored by AAMI is just around the corner and the VRC Derby Day is a great day for racing in Australia, with plenty of the world’s best thoroughbred horses racing throughout the course of the day.

The 2500 metre Victoria Derby is one of the main spectacles but there’s also the Coolmore Stud Stakes, the Lexus Stakes and the Myer Classic.

My Tips for the 2014 AAMI VRC Derby

This year the Vic Derby field has two standout horses according to most punters. The short priced favourite Hampton Court, trained by Gai Waterhouse and ridden by K. McEvoy deserves the outright favouritism after a dominant win in the Group One Spring Champion Stakes.

Damien Oliver is riding the second favourite, Preferment who was charging home in the Geelong Classic but just fell short of eventual winner, Nozomi, showing that he should definitely have the staying power for the extra distance in the Derby. If anyone can get the best out of this horse, I think Oliver can. These two are preferred by the punters and bookies, but another runner worth looking at is the grey Moonovermanhattan with C. Newitt on board. He’s drawn barrier 12 but Newitt shouldn’t have any trouble finding a good spot early.

Finally, Bondeiger has claims and if you take out the last run in the Moonee Valley Vase where he drew wide and got held up, he looks to have a chance in this one. Trainer, Danny O’Brien said “The Derby has been his aim all along and we stayed away from the tough races early on to save him for this race” he’s drawn barrier 1 so hopefully he doesn’t get stuck wide. O’brien also said “His pedigree suggests he will stay and he has finished strongly in all his races, including his last start which was his first go beyond a mile and a quarter”.
