Sacred Elixir to provide 2016 Victoria Derby cure for punters

October 24, 2016

flemington racesOnline bookmaker sportsbet.com.au reports heavy Victoria Derby backing for last Saturday’s Moonee Valley vase winner Sacred Elixir.

Punters continue to back the Kiwi colt and he’s into $3.20 favourite for the 2016 Victoria Derby at Flemington.

So Si Bon is next in betting at $7.00 and also second best backed runner, from Good Standing $8.00 and Inference $9.00.

Team Hawkes three-year-old Swear is $13.00, and the son of Redoute’s Choice is coming off a last start runner-up finish in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick.

His spring form suggests he is looking for the longer distance of the Derby.

However, the Tony Pike-trained Sacred Elixir is the one punters want following his impressive Group 2 Vase (2040m) win on the weekend.
