Does Second Favourite in Blue Diamond Betting Hallowell Belle Have a Shot Against Sepoy?

On Saturday Darley-owned colt Sepoy is set to start one of the shortest-priced Blue Diamond Stakes favourites in decades and all the money has been on the unbeaten two-year-old to maintain his flawless record in the $1 million feature, but does second favourite in the Blue Diamond betting Hallowell Belle have a shot against Sepoy?

There are a plethora of potential turf stars in the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes field including the likes of last-start Talindert Stakes champion Anevay, Blue Diamond Prelude runner-up Running Tall and Group winner Arctic Command.

Punters aren’t sceptical over the depth of this year’s Blue Diamond line-up, it’s just that Sepoy is THAT good.

He’s a three-time winner, undefeated, and the embarrassing margins by which he continues to win have put his rivals to shame.

Peter Snowden’s Elusive Quality colt Sepoy has dominated the Blue Diamond Stakes betting since the ante-post markets were released and as race time approaches the money continues to roll in.

Luxbet now have Sepoy odds-on at $1.55, backed in from $1.60 in the past day.

From the 13 other Blue Diamond Stakes hopefuls that face the daunting task of running against Sepoy on Saturday, only one of his rivals are at a single-figure price to claim an upset.

Hallowell Belle is the big improver in this field and is the $9.50 second favourite in the Blue Diamond odds.

So how does Peter Moody’s up-and-coming Starcraft filly Hallowell Belle stack up against Sepoy?

Why Hallowell Belle Can Beat Sepoy in the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes

– Has nice early speed to jump away well from the barriers and settle second or third in the field

– The Blue Diamond will be run and won from the front and her style will suit

– Ideal barrier four draw just inside of Sepoy

– Jockey of the moment Craig Williams in the mount

– Meets sepoy 2kg better under the set weight conditions

– Will get a better run than she did in the Fillies Prelude when third behind One Last Dance and Glissade

– She’s an unknown for Sepoy, he hasn’t raced against her

Why She Can’t

– Untested over 1200m

– She’s a maiden

– Looks far better for the Place

– Sepoy is the deserved favourite and will take some beating

– Check Sepoy’s stats

The 2011 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes is due to jump at 4:30pm (AEDST) as Caulfield Race 7 on Saturday.
