Australian Derby Final Field

Wednesday, 30th March 2016

The final field has been declared and the barrier draw conducted for the time-honoured Gr1 Australian Derby (2400m) to be run at Royal Randwick on Saturday. The $2 million 3YO classic has attracted a quality field that is headed by top-class colt and Victoria Derby winner Tarzino who is a dominant $2 TAB favourite for the race courtesy of his impressive last-start win in the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas. Tarzino's nearest market rival is the Godolphin colt and last-start Gr2 Alister Clark Stakes winner Tally at $6, while VRC Oaks winner Jameka ($7) and last season's Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes winner Vanbrugh ($9) are the only other runners under double figure odds.

1. TARZINO (Mick Price-Craig Newitt) 56.5kg (6)
