Tim Robards arrived via a helicopter to Melbourne's Derby Day on Saturday, while wife Anna Heinrich got her own ride.

And during a trackside interview with Kate Peck for Studio 10, the former Bachelor-turned-actor explained the separate modes of transportation.

The 37-year-old explained that with Anna's obligations as a Studio 10 reporter, it was best she prepare for the gig solo.

Tim said Anna had been sent '30 pages of MC notes' ahead of Saturday morning.

'I didn't get to see her. You know what? I said to her, "I think it's best I leave you [to it]". She's got a hotel and I've got a place down here [in Melbourne],' he revealed.

Tim said that Anna, 33, agreed it would be best to remain by herself while preparing for her reporting gig.

'She's like, "I just need to sit down, read my notes, and I don't want to distract you",' he recalled.

The Neighbours star went on to add that he will 'bounce around' between marquees at Derby Day, while Anna fulfills her media obligations. 

Tim cut a dapper figure in a crisp white dress shirt, a tailored black suit jacket and trousers, lace-up shoes and a grey tie, as he arrived for race day via helicopter.
