Fusaichi Ho O, Derby favorite

As of Saturday, Fusaro Sekiguchi-owned Fusaichi Ho O has been installed as the heavy favorite for the 2007 Japanese Derby at odds of 1.8. His winning streak ended last time out when finishing a close third in the Satsuki Sho(Japanese 2000 Guineas). The Derby would be his optimum trip and he could run up to the finish for the comeback. The 11.4 second favorite was the Satsuki Sho winner Victory, who could make or chase the pace to seek another classic glory. Admire Aura, who finished fourth in the Satsuki as favorite, was the 14.9 third favorite. Vodka, the only filly of the Derby field, was the fourth favorite at 16.6 followed by the Principal Stakes winner Golden Dahlia at 18.6. The rest of the field was 20.0 or higher price.
