While his overall record of four wins and three placings from 10 starts reads very well, Tom Kitten was unlucky on multiple occasions last campaign following a first-up in August and that prep culminated with a Group 1 victory in the Spring Champion Stakes.

The Godolphin colt relished his first try at 2000m in that latest triumph, where he bolted in as a $2.50 market elect and he did have handy form as a two-year-old around some decent sprinter/milers.

At $5 with bet365, Tom Kitten heads the betting for the 2024 Australian Derby and at $6.50, Riff Rocket occupies the second line of the market

Although Riff Rocket comfortably accounted for Apulia ($7.50) in their first two spring clashes, the latter did bridge the margin over the staying trip of the Victoria Derby, which Riff Rocket narrowly won as favourite.

Despite that narrow loss, the son of Fiorente does look like the superior stayer going forward, whereas Riff Rocket could be more dangerous around the 1600m-2000m range.

Sunsets beat both Riff Rocket and Apulia via the Caulfield Classic, while he then finished third behind that pair in the Victoria Derby.

He shares a $13 quote with Crocetti, a New Zealand-based three-year-old who is unbeaten from six starts, although he's yet to be tested past a mile.

Australian Derby Winners


Dating back to 1861 is the Australian Derby, making it one of the country's oldest and most famous races with Phar Lap, Tulloch, Dulcify, Kingston Town and Bonecrusher some of the famous winners.

The champion Octagonal holds the time record for the Australian Derby with a 2:28.41 victory in 1996 with the biggest winning margin coming back in 1886 when Trident strolled away to win the Australian Derby by 10 lengths.

Explosive Jack (2021), Hitotsu (2022) and Major Beel (2023) have won the last three editions of the Australian Derby.
