Mackintosh well backed for 2016 Queensland Derby in Brisbane

June 10, 2016

eagle-farmThe 2016 Queensland Derby will take place tomorrow and a strong move for Mackintosh could see the three-year-old depose Howard Be Thy Name as Derby favourite.

Howard Be Thy Name is the $4.40 favourite at Sportsbet but has eased from $4.00 for the Group 1 feature for three-year-olds.

Mackintosh, chasing his fourth straight win, has been well backed and is firm second pick at $4.60 while Eschiele $8.50 also has plenty of admirers.

“The Derby looks a wide open race, but punters appear to have settled on Mackintosh and Howard Be Thy Name, ” Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

Mackintosh is the one they have really come for and if the move continues he could start favourite.

The 2016 Queensland Derby is Race 8 at Eagle Farm on Saturday 11th June 2016 and start time is set down for 3pm in the afternoon.
