Daniel Clarken’s undefeated Adelaide speedster Miracles Of Life remains the short-priced favourite in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes odds after third declarations for the million dollar clash were taken this week.
Forty-nine promising juveniles remain on the path for the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse on February 23.
Not A Single Doubt filly Miracles Of Life however is not among those 49 Blue Diamond Stakes third acceptors but is still sitting top of the bookmaker.com.au markets at a quote of $3.60.
Connections have until February 18 to pay the $55,000 late entry fee to get the three time winner into the mix, Miracles Of Life last seen blitzing her Melbourne debut when putting an easy 4.5 lengths on Diamond Glow to win the Listed Blue Diamond (Fillies) Preview (1000m) on Australia Day.
There are now three other single figure Blue Diamond Stakes betting chances with:
- Guelph ($6) – Peter Snowden-trained Exceed And Excel filly ran second in the Gimcrack Stakes on debut during the spring before resuming with a nice win last Saturday at Warwick Farm
- Thermal Current ($8) – Another Exceed And Excel prodigy, this colt prepared by Peter Moody at Caulfield caught the eye when third in the Blue Diamond (colts & geldings) Preview last time out
- Politeness ($9.50) – Unraced daughter of Street Sense prepared by Robert Smerdon, has their maiden career start this Saturday in the Chairman’s Stakes at Caulfield which will make her Blue Diamond prospects much clearer
Other two-year-olds high up the markets that could prove the value bet of Blue Diamond Stakes Day then include Snowden Nursery Plate winner Metastasio ($12) who will look to earn a late entry with a win in the Chairman’s as the favourite this weekend, Cranbourne galloper Crack A Roadie ($15) last seen running a very close second in the Group 3 HKJC Maribyrnong Plate during the Melbourne Cup Carnival, Moody’s Sebring colt Dissident ($15) who won the Blue Diamond Preview on debut, and Gai Waterhouse’s Overreach ($15) who ran second in the Inglis Debutants Stakes back in October in their only run to date.
