Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

High Octane and Bodyguard were good debut winners and face off in this even race. Both have good chances in this. Stay Focused comes up with a good draw and can give this a shake. Holmes A Court is a good each way price and comes out of a solid form race.

Blue Diamond Prelude (C&G) 2024 Runner by Runner

1. High Octane (1)

Strong win on debut and maps for a good run from barrier 1. Well placed in this field and should take beating against these.

2. Wolfgang (10)

Prefer others.

3. Bodyguard (9)

Strong win on debut and nicely placed in this field. Massive drifter in the market but has ticked all the boxes and can take this out.

4. Stay Focused (3)

Big debut win and has received the lump of the early market support. Barrier 3 will ensure a good run and is a good chance in what is an even race.

5. Holmes A Court (8)

Can’t have.

6. Innervisions (5)

Can’t have.

7. Pieris (6)

Prefer others.

8. Hellberg (7)

Can’t have.

9. Cardiologist (4)

Trials have been good and Lane has been winning on everything he touches lately. Maps well from barrier 4 and gets a winnable race here.

10. Untapped (2)

Prefer others.
