Randwick Race 7: BMW Australian Derby 2400m

01/04/2016: Last years VRC Derby winner Tarzino was dominant in dispatching rivals in the Rosehill Guineas and this Australian Derby looks his to lose. The step up to 2400m is in his favour and he maps to get the perfect run from gate 6. Just needs a level playing field and should be too good again here. Tally is from an astute stable and lodges genuine claims. This colt has won 5 from 9 and was a last start emphatic winner of the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley. Has won all 4 runs this campaign and will need to go to yet another level to beat Tarzino but his career has really spiked last 2 runs and looms as a serious threat if Tarzino's a bit off. Jameka is the only filly engaged here but this VRC Oaks winner is certainly capable if breaks go her way. Should get a comfortable lead and is another suited by the distance spike. Should be in this for a long way. Torgerson is a winner this track and charged home from a mile back when runner up in the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes at Rosehill last time out. Could be suited by this trip and look for him hitting the line strongly late. N.Z. form hasn't exactly stood up in recent weeks but What's The Story was only narrowly beaten this distance in the N.Z. Derby last time out and must rate at least a place chance on that effort.

PACE COMMENTS Although not known as a front runner, given the make up of this field, pretty confident Oliver will push forward on Jameka and lead this lot. Tarzino draws well and should get a great run in transit on Jameka's back. McDonald is expected to push the in form Tally forward and race prominent throughout. Clear lack of top end speed on paper here and no guarantee of a genuine pace which if it does pan out like that won't afford backmarkers any favours.
