2013 Blue Diamond Chance Kuroshio on the Up – McEvoy

Darley Australia’s No. 1 rider Kerrin McEvoy is confident his mount in Saturday’s Blue Diamond Colts & Geldings Preview, Kuroshio, is a progressive type with every chance of success on the weekend heading towards the Blue Diamond Stakes 2013.


Kuroshio is a top chance for Saturday's Blue Diamond Preview according to Kerrin McEvoy

McEvoy, who will be on a quick mission in Sydney to ride promising three-year-old Sessions in the Canterbury Classic on Friday night, returns to Melbourne for Saturday’s Australia Day races at Caulfield where he has a strong book of rides.

One of his best chances of black type success at the meeting looks to be Peter Snowden’s Exceed And Excel colt Kuroshio who will jump one of the top fancies in the $120,000 Listed Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Preview (Colts & Geldings) (1000m).

In the latest markets for Caulfield Race 3 on Saturday Kuroshio is the currently $3.40 second pick at bookmaker.com.au hot on the heels of the Peter Moody-trained Thermal Current paying $3.30.

Kuroshio has had two starts so far, both in stakes company.

They scored a tidy pay day on debut at Flemington on October 6 last year when Glen Boss guided them to a close win in the Listed Herald Sun Superracing Stakes (1000m).

Backing up 11 days later Vlad Duric was in the saddle this time when Kuroshio ran third to Villa Verde in the Listed Inglis Debutants Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield.

McEvoy, the third jockey in as many starts to partner the Blue Diamond-bound juvenile, believes they are deserving of their short price in their race return after the up-and-comer impressing with a nice recent jump out.

“Kuroshio had a jump out at Werribee and won his heat in very good style,” he said.

“He has improved and the team are happy with where he is at.”

Other notable chances in the BD Preview that will be out to improve their claims for the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) on February 23 include Danny O’Brien’s More Than Ready colt Excitable Boy who ran third to Kuroshio in the Superracing Stakes and a debutant from the Moody stables Dissident.

In the futures markets for the Blue Diamond Stakes Kuroshio is rated a $26 chance, a price that will firm should they salute on Saturday.

McEvoy also has a plum ride in the fillies’ edition of the Blue Diamond Previews riding Montsegur from the inside alley.

The New Approach filly is the current second pic in the Blue Diamond futures betting paying $10 despite not being nominated.

Her run on Saturday will determine whether connections pay the $55,000 late entry to get her into the big one as she comes up against the current Blue Diamond Stakes betting favourite and fellow non-nominee Miracles Of Life.
