2011 Blue Diamond Stakes Odds

February 3rd, 2011

The 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes odds have reopened at bookmakers around Australia following the release of the third acceptances for the $1 million showdown earlier in the week and Sepoy remains the firm favourite.

The $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) will take place at Caulfield on Saturday February 26 and currently 162 two-year-olds are still vying for a spot in the maximum 16-starter Blue Diamond Stakes final field.

Leading the way is the Peter Snowden-trained Sepoy, firming into the $3.90 favourite to become the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes winner through Luxbet.

Winner of the Blue Diamond Preview for colts on Australia Day, Elusive Quality colt Sepoy remains unbeaten in his two career starts.

Second favourite in the Blue Diamond betting markets at Luxbet is winner of the Fillies Preview, One Last Dance.

Prepared by Peter Moody, Encosta De Lago filly One Last Dance is also unbeaten having won both of her race starts to date but based on the narrow margin of her last-start win in the Blue Diamond Preview, is at longer odds of $8.

Following closely at a quote of $9.50 is Delago’s Lad.

Delago’s Lad caused an upset at Sandown on January 29 when they claimed a surprise win in the Routley’s Plate which saw them shorten dramatically in the Blue Diamond betting.

Other Blue Diamond Stakes entries in the market include Blue Diamond Fillies runner-up Anevay ($11), Mick Price’s Dane Shadow filly Holdontoyahorses ($12) a winner of both their race starts, General Nediym gelding Boys On Tour ($14) and Peter Snowden’s Redoute’s Choice filly Glissade ($14).

Punters that are looking for longer-priced roughies that have claims to cause an upset Blue Diamond Stakes result will find value further down the market.

Clarry Conner’s speeding filly Satin Shoes at $19 and Eclair Desire paying $34 through Luxbet are our top roughie picks for the Blue Diamond at this stage.

A number of juveniles further down Blue Diamond Stakes odds will race at Caulfield this weekend including Peter Moody’s Metonymy ($17), unraced Starcraft colt Cape Canaveral ($18), Exceed And Excel colt Covered In Class ($71), Fastnet Rock filly And Rock ($71), Hell’s Kitchen ($101) and Executive Star ($201) all facing off in the $100,000 Listed Chairman’s Stakes (1100m).

A victory by any of these runners in the Chairman’s Stakes will likely see them move up the Blue Diamond Stakes order of entry and firm in the betting markets, so keep a close eye on the results and odds at Luxbet.
