Handy three-year-old Charlevoix is poised to continue the strong run of favourites in the South Australian Derby.
Six favourites have won the race in the last 10 years and Charlevoix heads betting at $4.20 with sportsbet.com.au. The Mick Kent trained three-year-old is also the best backed runner with the online bookmaker.
Trainer Lee Freedman will chase his third SA Derby with Cool Chap. The VRC St Leger winner is second favourite at $6.50. Arcadia Dream ($17) is the best supported of the outsiders.
“Punters must have read the history books and the great record of favourites in this race. Charlevoix holds two-thirds of the money and three times more than the second best backed Cool Chap,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
