A talent-rich and capacity field of two-year-olds has been confirmed for Saturday’s featured 2016 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Extreme Choice has remained outright favourite in Blue Diamond Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for the entire 2016 racing calendar so far, but has interestingly drifted to a quote of $3 over the last 24 hours.
Trialling well in the lead-up to his competitive debut, Extreme Choice immediately stamped himself as a colt to follow when delivering a strong field a comfortable two length defeat in the Inglis Nursery (1000m) on December 12th.
Having completed an ideal tune-up upon resuming this time for a near-five length win in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (1000m), the Not A Single Doubt colt has been charged with overcoming the awkward barrier 13 but is more than worth consideration at his current Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes odds.
Stable mate Flying Artie has been one of the more worrying drifters in Blue Diamond Stakes betting this week; blowing out to a quote of $4.60 for success after opening at $3.80.
Debuting for a close second in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) on November 7th, Flying Artie posted a strong barrier trial win on February 1st before taking out the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) on February 13th.
Flying Artie has also been charged with overcoming a sticky draw in barrier 17 but will be partnered by champion hoop Damien Oliver and only offers more value the longer he drifts in Blue Diamond Stakes betting markets.
Concealer is yet to herald much interest in 2016 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes betting markets but remains at generous $6 odds for success and outright third-favourite.
Concealer was rated little chance of success in the Group 3 Emirates Airline Plate (1000m) on debut on Melbourne Cup Day, but produced an impressive all-round effort to comfortably win the race by half a length at $21 odds.
Resuming in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) a fortnight ago, the daughter of Nicconi was dropped to the rear of the field and absolutely savaged the line for a close second to fellow Blue Diamond Stakes entrant Samara Dancer.
Samara Dancer interestingly figures as the only other runner currently available at 2016 Blue Diamond Stakes odds of less-than $10; cutting from a quote of $9 to currently register as clear $6.50 market mover.
$101 chance Reemah finished an agonizingly-close second to Pride Of Dubai in last year’s edition of the Blue Diamond Stakes, and arguably it is the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig-trained Highland Beat ($101) that appears the most likely to cause a big boil-over at huge Blue Diamond Stakes odds.
