Charlevoix has more than stamped himself as a colt to follow this time and remains sole occupant of the top line of 2016 South Australian Derby betting with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Debuting for success in the Grand Hotel Frankston Maiden (1400m) at Sandown on February 3rd, Charlevoix made a credible transition to black type racing when sixth in the Group 2 Autumn Classic (1800m) three weeks later.

Progressing to fourth in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) on March 18th, the son of New Approach will carry winning form into the SA Debry after taking out the Listed Galilee Series Final (2400m) on April 9th.

Neither Howard Be Thy Name nor Cool Chap are yet to herald much interest in 2016 South Australian Derby betting markets, but the classy pair remain locked on the second line at generous $5.50 odds.

Howard Be Thy Name I yet to finish outside the first three through an impressive ten start career so far, but undoubtedly faces his biggest task to date in the 2016 SA Derby.

Running second in the Listed Tasmanian Derby (2400m) on February 5th, the Redoute’s Choice colt returned to winning form in the Racing.com BM70 (1600m), and has since taken out each of the Listed Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) and Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2020m).

Howard Be Thy Name could very well receive the run of the race in the South Australian Derby from barrier 6 and is more than worth consideration for a bet at current odds.

Cool Chap began his short racing career under the guidance of the recently-retired Peter Moody, but has undoubtedly kicked up a gear since transferring to the care of Lee and Anthony Freedman in March.

Taking out the Noel Rundle Handicap (2000m) on March 26th, the High Chaparral gelding ran second in the Galilee Series Final before taking out the Listed VRC St Leger (2800m) with ease on April 25th.

Godolphin runner Tarquin ($7) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at 2016 SA Derby odds of less-than $10, while Perth filly Arcadia Dream represents terrific value at a $10 quote.
