2015 Tasmanian Derby Betting Update

February 5th, 2015

Just ten runners have been confirmed in the 2015 Tasmanian Derby (2200m) final field, offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.

Having returned to racing in typically competitive form this season, mainland raider Dandy Gent has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Tasmanian Derby betting markets, currently available at a quote of $3.60 for success with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Claiming one win and two minor places from his eight competitive starts so far, Dandy Gent finished ninth in the Avis Rent A Car Plate (1318m) first-up on November 8th but quickly found form in placing third in the Vaughn Constructions Maiden (1612m) and winning the Hyland Sportswear Plate (1700m) on December 4th.

Having placed second in a minor over 2015m and fourth in each of the Sportingbet 3.y.o (1800m) and Chandler Macleod BM78 (2040m) most recently, punters may find value in adding the Savoire Vivre gelding as a selection in a Tasmanian Derby quinella or trifecta.

The only other mainland contender confirmed in the 2015 Tasmanian Derby final field, Baja Moon currently figures as outright second favourite for success at a quote of $3.70.

Placing second in the Organs Coaches Plate (1450m) first-up on December 22nd, Baja Moon broke through for a maiden race win in the Max Blakiston Plate (1600m) on January 15th before a luckless run for fifth when blocked for a run late in the Chandler Maclead BM78 last time out.

Offered an exceptional chance for success from barrier 2, Baja Moon will carry a race-low 55kgs in the 2015 Tasmanian Derby.

Yet to receive much more than a sprinkling of bets for success, Shiralee has maintained position on the third line of 2015 Tasmanian Derby betting at odds of $3.80.

Finishing in the minor places over two Launceston events early this campaign, Shiralee ran a credible sixth in the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) on January 11th before an agonizingly-close second in the Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) last time out.

A proven performer over track and distance, the Stratum gelding arguably offers punters the best value for money at current odds.
