With previous feature triumphs in Hobart, Sydney and Adelaide, Explosive Jack is aiming for an incredible fourth Derby win this Saturday.

He will jump from barrier six under John Allen in the 2021 Queensland Derby.

Ciaron Maher & David Eustace will also be represented by the South Australian Derby runner-up Let's Karaka Deel (barrier three) and Toscanini (barrier eight).

Chris Waller has six runners with Kukeracha (barrier two), Achiever (barrier 11), Bucharest (barrier 19), Senor Toba (barrier 21), Fortified (barrier 16) and Quiet Michael (barrier 10) all accepted.

Winning the Rough Habit lead-up at long odds was Criminal Defence who has drawn well in four with Jye McNeil taking the reins.
