2011 AJC Australian Derby – Betting Tips

April 7th, 2011

The 150th running of the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby will take place at Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 9, 2011, and here we have put together the latest tips for the race.

Currently the $2.20 favourite at Luxbet, Jimmy Choux is tipped to win the 2011 AJC Australian Derby.

Jimmy Choux has won seven of his past eight starts, most recently posting a victory in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas ahead of Retrieve and Shamrocker.

Trainer John Bary is over the moon with Jimmy Choux’s trackwork performances since the Rosehill Guineas.

“He galloped with one of Guy Walters’ and they ran the last 1200m in 1:20, the 600m in a smart 36 and a bit,” Bary said.

Jimmy Choux was lucky enough to draw the inside barrier (1) for the 2011 AJC Australian Derby and will be ridden by regular jockey Jonathan Riddell in the race.

The three-year-old Thorn Park colt has already won seven group races this preparation so far, and appears on track to claim his eighth in the 2011 AJC Australian Derby.

Jimmy Choux has won ten of his 17 career starts and has earned himself over NZ $2.22 million and AU $300,000 in prize money.
