Blue Diamond Stakes 2024 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Wide open race. Coleman looks to get the right run from barrier 7 and will be hard to beat in this company. Lady Of Camelot also looks well placed launching from barrier 4 and should give this field a shake. Bodyguard has done nothing wrong to date and can win again while the Snowdens are represented with High Octane and have a good record in this race.
