Japanese Derby Tips & Tokyo Yushin Preview

The Tokyo Yushin (also known as the Japanese Derby) is run over 2400m for the colts and geldings.

This is the second leg of the triple crown, the first taken out by Contrail who looks set to take this out as well.

Only six horses have completed the triple crown, the latest being Deep Impact, the sire of many of these runners.

Japanese Derby Best Bet - Contrail

The unbeaten colt out of champion sire and racehorse Deep Impact looks set to be the one to beat in this year's Triple Crown series.

He is already a two time Group One winner, including the Satsuki Sho (Japanese 2000 Guineas), which was a dynamic win and the first leg of the 3YO Triple Crown.

The step up to 2400m from the 2000m looks a positive, running away from Sailos late in the piece, which is a sign that the further he gets this prep, the better he will be.

I think we may see a little market push for Sailos considering the margin between the two last start, so we may get a little better than the 1.50 available.

The fifth place getter in the Satsuki Sho, the 2400m should play into this gallopers favour, being out of Deep Impact and the two time Group One winning, Argentinian mare, Balada Sale.

It is hard to see him turning the tables on the favourite based off the margin between them last start, but if the favourite does strike some trouble in the run, he is the one that will relish the rise in trip and could run over the top.

He is already a winner at Tokyo, around the left handed circuit so all signs are saying that he will be running a nice race at double figure odds.
