Queensland Derby Tips & Odds

The Queensland Derby is one of the winter carnival's best races and our team will have your betting tips for the event in the lead up to the event.

We will have final field tips for the race when it is released three days prior to the running, however, punters can bet into the market around four months before the Group 1 is run. 

Bookmakers offer a comprehensive Queensland Derby market with all the major runners covered and our latest tips can be found above.

Queensland Derby Field & Barrier Draw

We normally have a rough idea of the three-year-olds that will take to the field in the Derby but the final number isn't set in stone until the week leading up to the race.

The Queensland Derby barrier draw is also released in the week leading into the event.

Queensland Derby Form Guide

The Queensland Derby is the last good three-year-old race on the Australian racing landscape and one of the targetted races of the winter carnival.

History suggests it pays to be a last-start winner in this event with over half the Derby winners coming into the race looking to go back-to-back.

Queensland Derby History

The Queensland Derby is the final big three-year-old race of the season.

First ran in 1868, the race was once a Group 1 launching event with the likes of Kingston Town and Strawberry Road claiming this race before going on to bigger and better things.

Today the Queensland Derby has been a Hong Kong feeder race with Dark Dream and Eagle Way claiming this event before being sold to race in Sha Tin.
