4/4/2018 Levendi draws three in Derby

Last start Tulloch Stakes (Gr 2, 2000m) winner Levendi (Pierro) has drawn barrier three in the Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) at Randwick on Saturday. “We’ve been here a couple of times and had no luck,” said Peter Gelagotis. “There’s not ten lengths between the field so you need things to go right on the day. The form suggested he’d be in the mix last week, we supported our horse accordingly and he didn’t let us down. It was exciting and we roll into a big one with a lot of favours. If he’s good enough on the day he’s good enough.’’ Meanwhile, dual Group One winner Ace High (High Chaparral) will race from barrier two with Tye Angland set to take the ride.

In latest betting Ace High is the $5 favourite.
