The gelding Esterel (West Quest-Miss Clavel, by Fearless Pride) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $200,000 Gr3 Tasmanian Derby (2200m) for 3YOs at Elwick in Hobart. Esterel (ridden by Kelvin Sanderson for trainer John Blacker) won by a nose from the colt Pride Of Westbury (Octagonal-Taittinger, by Al Akbar) with a further long-neck to favoured fellow gelding Jeune Cheval (Jeune-Amuse Us, by First Norman). Esterel now has 3 wins & 7 placings (including a last start 3rd in the Listed Hobart Guineas over 1600m at Elwick on January 29) in 12 starts for $154,397 prize-money.
