Ruthven has been the best supported in early betting with Sportsbet.com.au to take out the Queensland Derby (2400m) this Saturday at Doomben.
The Ciaron Maher trained three year old comes here off a four week freshen up where he last raced in the SA Derby, running a huge second to Volatile Mix after doing a power of work in the run. Bowman jumps on and so are the punters. He is now the $4.00 clear favourite in betting after opening at $6.00.
Shocking Luck has had his admirers and is solid around the $5.50 quote. His effort in the Granx Prix was very good. Ana Royale, who had no luck in the Oaks last weekend, was $9 in from $10 but currently is at $9.50.
