Perth filly Delicacy ($2.90) displayed a keen turn of foot to take out last weekend’s Group 1 Australasian Oaks (2000m) and has been backed into clear favouritism in 2015 SA Derby betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Manapine ($7) and October Date ($8).

Will Delicacy justify her resounding favouritism and win the 2015 South Australian Derby, or will one of her talented opponents hit the line in the clear?

1st

Werther ($12)

Kiwi raider Werther found exceptional form in his homeland this season, and while needing some luck from a wide draw, arguably offers the best chance of defeating Delicacy and great value for money in 2015 SA Derby betting markets at current $12 odds. Posting three wins and four minors through ten career starts so far, the son of Lord Tavistock won a minor over 1600m on March 20th; progressing to a close second in the Group 3 Manawatu Classic (2000m) before taking out the Group 2 Championship Stakes (2100m) most recently on April 18th.

2nd

Allergic ($15)

Godolphin has experienced notable staying success this year and are offered a great chance of continuing the trend through Allergic in the 2015 SA Derby, who arguably offers punters the best value for money at current $15 odds. Securing three wins and three minors through his ten career starts to date, Allergic returned to racing this time for a comfortable win in the Animal Aid Coldstream BM64 (2025m) on April 10th before repeating the dose in the Browns Sawdust & Shavings BM70 (2060m) last time out on April 24th. Allocated the ideal barrier 1, the Street Cry gelding will be looking to muster a late charge for success on Saturday.

3rd

Delicacy ($2.90)

Undoubtedly the class horse of the 2015 South Australian Derby field, Delicacy has been up and racing for a long time this season and may find the late going of Saturday’s feature a bit tough following the one week back-up. Undoubtedly the stable star of Grant Williams this year, the Al Maher filly won each of the Listed Ascot 1000 Guineas (1800m), Listed Natasha Stakes (2200m), Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) and Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m) leading into her Australasian Oaks triumph and is sure to still lay a great account for herself on Saturday.
