2021 Australian Derby Best Bets
Aegon is prominent in many futures markets and rightly so, he was super impressive winning the Hobartville Stakes first up over 1400m. We must see what distance is his limit, the 2400m here may be pushing it.
Young Werther can certainly stay the trip, and if he makes it up to Sydney, he is in with a massive chance. He ran out of steam in the VRC Derby last spring off an unsuitable limited platform, and has the chance to improve in the autumn with a more solid lead up.
Khoekhoe looks another promising young stayer who could stay the trip and be competitive if connections decide to travel north to Sydney.
