Jimmy Choux has cemented his position at the top of AJC Derby markets after he drew the inside barrier for Saturday’s feature.

Before the barrier draw, the star Kiwi colt was a $2.20 favourite with TAB Sportsbet for the AJC Australian Derby (2400m).

However, he is now into a $2.00 favourite, and it is possible that he may be the first odds on favourite in the AJC Derby since Octagonal in 1995.

Octagonal defeated a top field, including the likes of Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup winner Saintly, Melbourne Cup placegetter Nothin’ Leica Dane and Cox Plate placegetter Filante.

This year’s field doesn’t look to have the same quality as that of 1995.

There are two other horses under double figures with TAB Sportsbet – Retrieve, who disappointed in the Tulloch Stakes last Saturday, is at $7.00 while the sole filly in the field, Australian Guineas winner Shamrocker, is at $9.00.

They have drawn barriers 12 and 8 respectively.

Here is the final field for the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby (2400m), with their likely jockey and current price next to their name (courtesy of Racing NSW):
