An eye-catching run behind Cliff’s Edge has been enough to convince one punter who has placed a large bet on one a long-odds pop in the upcoming Group One Australian Derby.
The TAB punter placed $2,000 at $26 odds on the Peter Gelagotis-trained Levendi to win the Australian Derby (2400m) which takes place at Randwick on Saturday, April 7.
The bet would see the hopeful punter collect $52,000 should the 3-year-old colt take out the $2m Australian Derby.
Levendi is coming off a second place finish behind Cliff’s Edge in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley earlier this month.
Levendi is expected to line up in Saturday’s Group 2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill where he sits on the second line of betting at $7.00.
