Complacent to miss entire autumn carnival

Complacent, one of the favourites for the Australian Derby, is out for the autumn because of injury.

Darley's head trainer, Peter Snowden, told Racing NSW stewards on Tuesday that the group 1-winning three-year-old had sustained an injury to the near foreleg.

Complacent rose to prominence last spring, going from a Hawkesbury maiden win in September to winning the group 3 Gloaming Stakes and group 1 Spring Champion Stakes at his next two starts.

The colt by Authorized rounded out his spring campaign with a second to Polanski in the Victoria Derby after striking interference 2000 metres from home.

With Complacent now out of the race, Polanski is the $3.50 favourite for the Australian Derby, ahead of Savvy Nature at $6, with the TAB.
