2011 Tasmanian Derby Betting Tips

February 4th, 2011

Hobart is looking forward to the 2011 Tasmanian Derby that will take place at Tattersall’s Park this Saturday February 5, 2011.

The Group 3 Tasmanian Derby will take place in Race 6 and is a three-year-old handicap raced over a distance of 2,200 metres.

Worth $150,000, the 2011 Tasmanian Derby features a some of the best up and coming horses in Australia.

Early support seems directed towards Peter GelagotisMourinho, who has won two of its first five starts.

The three-year-old gelding is current favourite despite finishing last in its previous start at Flemington.

Our pick to win the 2011 Tasmanian Derby is the Lee Freedman trained Ludka, who is hoping to back up her win at the 2011 Hobart Guineas (2100m) on January 26, 2011.

Ludka has drawn barrier one in the race and will be ridden by jockey Steven King.

We also like the look of Tommy Young’s filly Tiger Won’t Tell who ran an unlucky second to Ludka in the Hobart Guineas last month.

Despite being held up in the last 200 metres, Tiger Won’t Tell came back to lose by only a short-head against the tough field.

Odds for the entire 2011 Tasmanian Derby field will be available shorty at Luxbet.

Other horses to watch out for include Leigh Child’s Heez Born Lucky and the Stratum filly Rose of Scotland.
