Odeon has been one of the form three year olds in the middle distance ranks in recent times and punters believe that will culminate in a SA Derby (2500m) triumph this Saturday at Morphettville.

The Ellerton/Zahra trained galloper comes back to Morphettville after toughing it out strongly to record a dominant win against the older horses at Caulfield over 2000m. The rise to 2500m looks ideal and Lane takes over. He opened $3.80 and has been crunched into $3.20.

He clearly holds sway over Netherfield, who was luckless last time out in the Chairmans. He has been $6 to $6.50 and is pretty solid. Ruthven has also eased half a point to $7.50 after opening at $7.

There hasn’t been a significant firmer outside Odeon, so it really is all one way traffic with the favourite.
