The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Northwest Passage is the winner of three of his four race starts and has been made the $1.35 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au for the Tasmanian Derby after a last start seven and a half lengths win in the Listed $100,000 Kevin Sharkie Hobart Guineas (2100m) at Hobart on January 22.

Sydney based jockey Adam Hyeronimus keeps the ride on the So You Think gelding who has drawn barrier five in the nine horse Tasmanian Derby field.

The closest to Northwest Passage in the betting is the Patrick Payne trained Matamanoa at $9 just ahead of Mick Price’s Shadow Prince at $10.

Matamanoa has drawn nicely at barrier three with Luke Currie taking over from apprentice Beau Mertens who was aboard the gelding last start when fourth in a 2040m BenchMark 78 Handicap at Moonee Valley on January 21.

Shadow Prince has set the pace at his last two runs and Noel Callow is likely to go forward again after the grey draw the outside gate in the nine horse field.

The Darren Weir trained Igitur is next in the market order at $11 while Trusted Warrior is the best of the locals at $15.

Brendon McCoull takes over from Sigrid Carr on Trusted Warrior who will have to make up over seven and a half lengths on Northwest Passage after finishing third to that gelding in the Hobart Guineas.
