Which Horse Will Win The Queensland Derby

The best way to pick who will win the Queensland Derby is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Strong Stayers – Look for a horse that has been recently getting a top 3 result at distances of 2000 metres or more.
  • Single Figure Odds – Only very rarely have horses jumped from double-digit odds to win the race.
  • Local Lead ups – Most recent winners had also won their previous race, so look for the top result in similar length races

Queensland Derby Favourites

Early favourites include Nobu, Mr Quickie, Lord Arthur and Scarlet Dream.
