DARREN Weir won his first Victoria Derby with Extra Brut on Saturday and is in a good position to pick up his Victoria Victoria. It remains to be tested if the race is on the third day at the Melbourne Cup Carnival in Flemington.

Weir has three runners – the $ 3.30 favorite Amphitrite, Verry Elleegant and Zapurler, when he plans to become Lee Freedman's first coach in 2005 to make the classic double. The 2500m competition for pilots is the main event on the nine races.

Expert family tree Inglis Mark Dodemaide said the Weir trio outsider, Zapurler, had blood to win the Oaks.

Jockey John Allen hopes to continue the amazing week when Verry Elleegant will travel to Oaks. Last Saturday, Allen won the Victoria Derby on Extra Brut and on Wednesday went on another Coldie, which won a $ 125,000 Kyneton Cup victory.
