  • SA Chances on Blue Diamond Day

    Posted by Arlen Kaesler

    Blue Diamond Day in Melbourne sees two SA horses venture across the border to have a crack at two Group Races, while Angaston trainer Tony McEvoy has three runners in the $1.5 million Group One Blue Diamond Stakes.

     

    Race 2 - Group Three Zeditave Stakes 1200m

    #2 Benz – T: Gordon Richards J: Blake Shinn

    Benz is first up this preparation after running 5th in the Group Two Sandown Guineas in his last start.

    He won first up at 1200m in his last preparation and took out a recent trial by 0.2L. This is the first time gun Sydney jockey Blake Shinn will ride him.

    His biggest threats look to be the highly touted colt, Derryn and the John O’Shea trained Peacock, a Listed winner who has form behind Malaguerra and Black Heart Bart from the Australia Stakes in January.

    Benz is currently rated a $6.50 chance on the UBET fixed market. Click here to view the market

     

    Race 8 - Group One Oakleigh Plate 1100m

    #13 Ready Sunshine – T: Ryan Balfour J: Michael Dee

    The ever consistent Ready Sunshine ran a slashing fourth in his outing in the Listed W.J. Adams three weeks ago at Caulfield at big odds. Michael Dee will take the ride on him again.

    Ready Sunshine faces the test of his life as he comes up against three Group One winning horses including Myer Classic winner I am a Star, Blue Diamond and Moir Stakes winner Extreme Choice and last year’s Oakleigh Plate winner and Goodwood winner Flamberge.  

    Ready Sunshine is currently rated a $126 chance on the UBET fixed market. Click here to view the market
