Gr1 Australian Derby Field & Barrier Draw

Wednesday, 29th March 2017

The final field has been declared and the barrier draw conducted for the time-honoured $2 million Gr1 Australian Derby (2400m) at Royal Randwick this Saturday. Tab favourite Gingernuts ($3.50), who is seeking to emulate Mongolian Khan (2015) and champion Bonecrusher (1986) in claiming the Australian & New Zealand Derby double, has drawn one from the outside in barrier 12, although this is unlikely to be a disadvantage over the mile-and-a-half journey. Second favourite Inference ($4.40) has drawn perfectly in barrier 4, while fellow Kiwi 3YO Jon Snow (barrier 9) and Anaheim (barrier 1) are the only other runners under double-figure odds at $6 and $8 respectively.
