After a narrow miss over 2000m in the Australasian Oaks, the Dan Morton-trained She's Fit has stayed in Adelaide to contest the 2023 South Australian Derby.

A winner of the WA Oaks over 2400m, the Western Australian filly then placed in the W.A.T.C Derby as a well supported $2.30 favourite, before heading to South Australia.

At $4.20 with PlayUp, She's Fit heads the the 2023 South Australian Derby markets, with Promises Kept ($5.50) on the second line of betting.

Now prepared by the powerful Maher & Eustace stable (ex-Greg Eurell), Promises Kept proved his staying prowess with a strong last start win in the St Leger Trial at Bendigo.

Aberfeldie Boy is a lightly raced and progressive stayer from the Griffiths & de Kock yard, with the half-brother to Castlereagh Kid (Group 2 winner) arriving here off a third behind D'aguilar and White Marlin, which reads well for a three-year-old event.

The son of So You Think placed over this trip in the 2022 Victoria Derby.

Suizuro ($9.50) is one of the best credentialed runners in the South Australian Derby markets, a gelding that was Group 2 placed in the Alister Clark prior to an eye-catching third at Randwick in the Australian Derby.

He was four weeks between runs and dropping back to 2000m when third in the Chairman's Stakes on April 29, which is traditionally the main lead-up to the South Australian Derby.
