Victorian Derby Final Field, Barrier draw & Current betting market

The all-important barrier draw has opened up the race for the 2015 Group I AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington on Saturday with a couple of the favoured runners drawing outside gates.

The staying test is the highlight event on the opening day of the famous four-day racing extravaganza known as the Melbourne Cup carnival. A field of 16 runners plus an emergency has been declared for the first blue riband of the season.

The favourite, Mick Price’s Tarzino drew middle of the pack in barrier 10 but David Hayes and Tom Dabernig’s Geelong Classic winner Extra Choice will start from wide out barrier after drawing 17. The Luke Price-trained Man Of Choice, a placegetter in the Group I Spring Champion Stakes also fared badly with gate 16.
