Randwick Race 7: BMW Australian Derby 2400m

03/04/2015: Victorian Derby winner Preferment won that race as a maiden and hasn't added to his tally since, but showed he is ready to notch his 2nd career win after just being bloused out last time in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas. Preferment should relish the step up in distance here and comes up as top selection. Hauraki is unknown this distance but was easy winner last time out in Group 2 event at Rosehill. Has won 3 out of his only 6 career starts and is a deserved favourite. Volkstok'n'Barrell was a narrow but impressive winner at his debut run this country and was runner up this distance in the New Zealand Derby. Has won 6 from 9 and has an undeniable chance to go one better in a Derby in this. Mongolian Khan was the winner of that New Zealand Derby so will have no worries with the distance but was pretty disappointing on debut this country last run when could only manage 5th of 7 runners. Omeros went from maiden win to Group 2 runner up last time and is bred to relish this trip. Is only lightly raced and has the freakish Joe Moreira aboard.

Randwick Race 7. RaceTime: AEDT 15:50, 04/04/2015

Front Runners (1) Mongolian Khan.
On Pacers (5) Volkstok'n'Barrell, (6) Hampton Court.
Mid Fielders (2) Omeros, (8) Bikila, (7) Brogue, (10) Preferment.
Get Back (4) Ruling Dynasty, (9) Hauraki, (3) Quick Strike.
PACE COMMENTS No natural leader in this lot and Mongoloian Khan is expected to make use of his inside gate and take up the running. The highly fancied Volkstok'n'Barrell will get a perfect trail for Craig Williams from gate 5 whilst Victorian Derby winner Preferment should settle mid field with pre-race favourite Hauraki expected to drop to the rear and will receive no favours from an tempo that is assessed as only being moderate.
