Schweppes-WATC Derby favourite Regal Power lived up to his name in his Schweppes-Melvista Stakes victory
According to Punting Form, Schweppes-Melvista Stakes winner Regal Power merits warm favouritism for Saturday's Schweppes-WATC Derby at Ascot Racecourse and, if any galloper is likely to upset the Grant and Alana Williams-trained gelding in the classic, it is Mackenzie Brooke from the Adam Durrant yard.
Regal Power boasts the best Punting Form last-start rating of the Schweppes-WATC Derby field and he was running away from his Schweppes-Melvista Stakes rivals in the latter stages - he posted the fastest final 200-metre, 400m, 600m and 800m sectionals, as well as the quickest splits from 600m to 400m and 200m to the finish line. None of the Schweppes-WATC Derby's male competitors is weighted to turn the tables on Regal Power so he is a rock-solid favourite. Of the Schweppes-WATC Derby's female contenders, Mackenzie Brooke was unlucky in the City of Belmont-WA Oaks when she was too far back in a slowly run race.
