Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) 2021 Preview

Track: Soft-Heavy   Weather: Rain

Eleven runners have accepted for the $160,000 fillies edition of the Blue Diamond Preview.  There are five first starters in the race as well as two resumers.  Three of them won on debut and are unbeaten.  One of those is Frost Flowers who looks set to start a strong favourite.  Her win came at Flemington on New Years day when she won impressively 1.5 lengths.  The second favourite is Dosh, she did a bit wrong on debut back in November but even so had enough class to win the race.

Saasmit kicked off her racing career at Murray Bridge in South Australia.  She started a $5 chance that day and showed a nice turn of foot down in a come from behind win.  Tayla’s Moment was no match for Frost Flowers on debut but accounted for the rest of her opposition comfortably.  She has a bright future.  Toffee Street is a daughter of Street Boss and appeared to have plenty left in the tank when winning a Werribee trial on January 12.  Viviane has also trialed up at Werribee and his strong connections – Ellerton, Zahra  & Lane much be respected.  Duchy Of Savoy is another to show talent at the jump outs and is bread to relish the wet conditions.  The remaining runners are $20-1 or longer.

2021 Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) Runner by Runner

1. Dosh

Did a bit wrong on debut in the Group 3 Ottawa Stakes but class shone through in an impressive performance.  Her jump outs have been good and she should be more suited around the bend on her home track rather than the Flemington straight.  One of the main chances.

2. Frost Flowers

This Anthony and Sam Freedman trained galloper kicked off her career in superb fashion on New Years Day.  She travelled sweetly in the run and then exploded when Jamie Kah asked her for an effort.  Expecting her to be hard to beat again.

3. Saasmit

Sat off the speed but accelerated to win easily by 3 lengths at her debut at Murray Bridge on January 9.  Needs to improve again to be a factor here but that’s not to say she can’t.

4.  Tayla’s Moment

No match for Frost Flowers on debut but still ran well to finish second.  On face value its hard to see her turning the tables on that horse but soft conditions may help her chances.

5. Adele Amour

Finished down the track in a weaker race on Boxing Day.  Would need to improve many lengths to be in the finish.

6. Invincibilius

Tipped out after finishing fourth behind General Beau on debut.  Can’t recommend off that.

7. Duchy Of Savoy

Team Hawkes and Craig WIlliams team up with Duchy Of Savoy.  She has finished second in both her jump outs.  The latest was behind General Beau (favourite for race 3).  She is bread to handle the wet and can run a race at big odds.

8. Ruby Mockingbird

This daughter of Written Tycoon finished fourth in a recent Sandown jump out.  The time wasn’t overly impressive but she was quite strong through the line.

9. Toffee Street

Debutant to be ridden by Michael Poy.  She lead and won a Werribee trial hard held and looks a talent.  She has each way claims on her home track.

10. Viviane

First starter trained by Ellerton and Zahra.  She stuck on okay behind the impressive Enthaar in a Werribee trial and gets Damian Lane here.  Place hope.

11. Wolves

Debutant – haven’t seen enough in her jump outs.
