Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Bold Bastille comes up favourite and looks well placed to be winning. Celerity has trialled well and goes in the mix. Flattered ran a bold second on debut and can go one better while Hayasugi and Matisse meet again with the former getting the upperhand but the latter was unlucky in the run.

Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Bold Bastille (10)

Rates clear of this bunch and was very impressive on debut. Tough draw but can take the next step here.

2. Hayasugi (13)

Tricky draw but good last start winner. Meets a few of these again and has the right upside to go on with things in this.

3. Froebel Star (6)

Mixing form to date but Zahra hops on and respecting previous placement by the stable. This race is well and truly within reach and maps for a good run.

4. Tobeornottobe (14)

Not far off Hayasugi last start and must be respected off that. Tough draw but goes in the mix.

5. Flattered (4)

Good debut behind a smart one. Maps well and can take this out.

6. Kuroyanagi (7)

Dual nommed so may run elsewhere. Huge first up win but much harder here. Respect the market.

7. In Her Eyes (17)

Prefer others.

8. Matisse (16)

Luckless last start and maps tricky but finds a good race to go on with things. Lane is on fire and he steers in this.

Prefer others.

Can’t have.

11. Shehungthemoon (12)
