Hitotsu was a very impressive winner of the VRC Derby over the Melbourne Spring, going straight from the mile of the Caulfield Guineas to contest the 2500m Flemington feature and is attempting a similar pattern here, stepping from the 1600m of the Australian Guineas.

At $2.60 with TopSport, the Maher & Eustace colt is the outright fav for the 2022 Australian Derby.

Regal Lion ($6) sits on the second line of betting, a son of Jakkalberry that caught the eye with a second in the Tulloch Stakes behind Character ($10).

The Busuttin & Young-trained Forgot You ($6.50) also feature in the early markets.
