2018 Ubet South Australian Derby Group 1 May 12 - Morphettville

Leicester wins 2018 Ubet South Australian Derby Group 1 $600,000 at Morphettville (SA), 2500m.

Like Peaceful State and Tequila Time, winners of two of the earlier features on the card as well as here two weeks ago, Leicester Horseform  proved that last start winning form holds up well and he was yet again too good for his staying rivals.

Damian Lane found a nice spot in fifth, one off the fence out of the straight with a circuit to run, moving into fourth starting down the back. He held his position past the 1000m to the 600m then crept a little closer and had a great view, four out, turning for home.

Lane asked the question at the 200m and the gelding ranged alongside at the 100m before edging away to win convincingly by a length and half, his fourth win in nine starts for earnings of $535,730.

Rezealient Horseform  was midfield at the 600m, ran wide turning in and kept up a strong run but was never going to catch the winner.

Runaway Horseform  did really well to hold third after setting the pace and fought back when headed at the 200m. Tropical Lightning Horseform  was second into the straight and kept battling to the line for a good fourth.
