Jimando Nears Odds-On in 2012 Chairman’s Stakes Betting

Current 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes favourite Jimando is nearing odds-on territory for their resuming run in the Chairman’s Stakes 2012 at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday.

This year’s edition of the Chairman’s Stakes is registered as the $100,000 Listed Emirates Airline Stakes (1100m) and is set to run as Caulfield Race 4 at 3:10pm (VIC time).

Unsurprisingly Tony McEvoy’s unbeaten Commands colt from Adelaide is dominating the Luxbet markets, the promising two-year-old having been backed in from $2.40 to $2.25.

Jimando caught the eye on debut last October when easily winning the Listed Inglis Debutants Stakes (1000m) by three and a half lengths at Caulfield, and McEvoy is confident they can make it two-from-two for their career and at the track this Saturday especially after they came up trumps in barrier two of 11.

The horse is also out to secure their spot at the top of the futures markets at Luxbet for the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) running at Caulfield on February 25, Jimando the current $5 favourite.

McEvoy, who worked as a foreman at Lindsay Park helping prepare many of the racing giant’s eight Blue Diamond Stakes winners including the record-breaking five trained by David Hayes, has Jimando earmarked as the right type to take out the million dollar classic.

“Nadeem, Mahaasin and quite a few Diamond winners that came through when I was with the Hayes camp, I think this horse holds his own with those in the comparative work up the hills at Lindsay Park, or Kildaton Park,” he said.

“I’m very happy, he’s certainly gone the right way and the form around him as been very complimentary to the horse, which I’ve enjoyed as well.”

McEvoy was speaking mainly of the impressive one and a quarter length win by The Travelling Man in the Listed Blue Diamond Stakes Preview (1000m) at Caulfield on January 26, Matt Laurie’s Mossman colt having previously run four and a half lengths away fourth to Jimando in the Inglis Debutants.

Just two of their rivals are under double-figures in the Chairman’s Stakes odds at Luxbet with the Mark Kavanagh-trained If I Could in from $3.90 to $3.80 despite their outside barrier 11 draw, and Strada filly Formidable in barrier seven paying $6.50, Formidable having beaten home If I Could when they finished one-two at Flemington over 1000m on debut last-start.

Other notable chances at longer odds include unraced Snitzel colt Pronto Pronto ($13 Luxbet) and the David Hayes-trained Mama’s Choice ($14 Luxbet) who also makes her first appearance under race conditions on Saturday.
