Punters Come for Atomic in Blue Diamond Stakes Betting 2011


Atomic has firmed in better for the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes

Since betting markets on the Blue Diamond Stakes field reopened at bookmakers today there have been many punters quick to back an upset with Atomic the first 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes market firmer.

The 14-horse final field of two-year-olds for the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), running as Caulfield Race 7 this Saturday, was released this morning followed by the updated Blue Diamond Stakes odds.

While the talented and as yet undefeated Sepoy is odds-on favourite paying $1.60 to become the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes winner through Luxbet, money has started coming in for a rival.

The Lee Freedman-trained Atomic is the only horse to firm in the Blue Diamond Stakes odds at Luxbet.

Opening as the $13 third-favourite, Commands colt Atomic swiftly shortened into $12 before firming again now at a quote of $11 to claim a Blue Diamond Stakes upset.

Atomic has an ideal barrier two draw for the Blue Diamond Stakes on Saturday and will be ridden by Craig Newitt.

Lightly-raced, Atomic has had just one career start to date when they impressively won the Listed Chairman’s Stakes (1000m) at Sandown on February 9 with Ben Melham in the mount.

Melham is engaged to ride the Danny O’Brien-trained Running Tall in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

Stratum colt Running Tall, runner-up to Sepoy in the Blue Diamond Prelude, is paying $17 at Luxbet for Saturday’s showdown.

On debut Atomic beat 10 runners home including fellow Blue Diamond Stakes acceptor Metonymy who ran fourth.

Atomic was a late entry into this year’s Blue Diamond Stakes, Freedman only paying up for the emerging juvenile at the last minute.

Freedman has a two-horse assault in Victoria’s richest race for two-year-olds having also paid up for Masthead.

Luxbet have Masthead as a $31 chance in their Blue Diamond Stakes betting after the last-start winner of the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) drew a horror barrier set to jump from gate 13.

To back a Blue Diamond Stakes upset with Atomic or to get behind the raging favourite Sepoy at the best price, visit Luxbet today!
