Getting into barrier two with early scratching Teewaters (1), the well-dressed Teofilo gelding has Damien Oliver he kept the hoop ride in pursuit of his first SA Derby success since the win aboard Zabeelionaire in 2012.

Oliver teamed up with Alegron in Flemington, the final start in the listed VRC St Leger (2800m) on Anzac Day, where the galloper saluted the punters as the favorite over two lengths.

That runaway victory followed his close third in double digits when he came under a length from the stylish Hitotsu in Randwick’s Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m) on wet April 2nd.

Alegron, a young stayer, was also in the money behind Hitotsu during the spring when he finished second in the Group 2 Victoria Derby (2500m) at HQ.

With a good number of good runs in elite company and the impressive win at the last start, things are looking good for Alegron to finally get his first group race this weekend.

The bookmakers agree and the favorite is at a current price of $3.10 in Bet on South Australian Derby at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Allen previously rode SA Derby winners Howard Be Thy Name (2016), Volatile Mix (2017), Russian Camelot (2020) and last year’s champion Explosive Jack (2021) to victory.

On Saturday, he jumps aboard another livewire opportunity with Detonator Jack three-of-three so far in easier company.

Last time out, the newcomer was solid, taking a 1.5-length win at Sandown-Lakeside in a Benchmark 78 over 2100m and looks set to improve in the rankings this weekend.

the early South Australian Derby market mover for $7 is Jungle Magnate for Mick Price and Michael Kent Juniorthe Kiwi-bred son of Tarzino who took a run-up win on the track.

Tenth in last year’s PRC Derby, he has improved this preparation with two wins from his last three appearances, including a three-quarter win over Harley moven in Adelaide’s Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (2000m) on April 30.
