Queensland Derby 2016: Mackintosh is the punters tip

A strong move for Mackintosh could see the three-year-old depose Howard Be Thy Name as Derby favourite.

Howard Be Thy Name has eased from $4.00 out to $4.40 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.

Mackintosh, chasing his fourth straight win, has been well backed and is firm second pick at $4.60 while Eschiele ($8.50) also has plenty of admirers.

In the J.J. Atkins the Kiwi gelding Sacred Elixir ($4.20 into $4.00 favourite) is commanding most of the support. Candika has firmed from $9.00 into $8.00 and there is not a lot of love for Souchez ($4.60).

“The Derby looks a wide open race, but punters appear to have settled on Mackintosh and Howard Be Thy Name. Mackintosh is the one they have really come for and if the move continues he could start favourite,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
