EXCITEMENT BUILDS FOR DIAMOND

Suddenly there’s a buzz around the two-year-old races with some exciting performances in recent weeks and it will continue to build towards it’s Melbourne crescendo which is the Blue Diamond Stakes at Caulfield on February 24.

In recent weeks the Snowden-trained High Octane looked above average when he won the Blue Diamond Preview for the colts and geldings.

He idled to the line and the Snowden’s will continue to build on his fitness. He will be seen in the Blue Diamond Prelude on Saturday at Caulfield.

Then last Saturday, Matt Laurie’s Coleman toyed with his rivals to win the Chairman’s Stakes to make it two wins from two starts. Although the effort from runner-up, two-year-old filly Eneeza was sound as she settled last and managed to produce the fastest last 400 metres for the meeting of 22.03 seconds.



Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott also produced an outstanding filly to win the Widden Stakes at Rosehill with Lady Of Camelot winning easily.

Lady Of Camelot could be joined by several other recent winners from the stable in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

The picture could become clearer or harder after the Blue Diamond Preludes on Saturday.
If High Octane could win impressively he’s likely to return to the top of the markets.

At Playup, Lady Of Camelot is a $5 favourite with Coleman at $5.50 and High Octane third favourite at $6 for the Blue Diamond Stakes.
