2022 Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) Tips


Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) 2022 Best Bet - Philosopher

Over 1000m, I am finding it hard to look past this colt who was a great winner on debut and although not winning by a space, he maintained a high cruising speed.

In the small field. he is going to get the time of his life in front and hopefully we get to see if he has that change up speed, which I think he does coming from the Freedman camp.

One of the Blue Diamond fancies, at this trip and with the race experience, Philosophert is the one they all need to beat.

Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) 2022 Next Best Bet - Rampant Lion

If this race was over the 1100m such as the Prelude, then I would be all over him, but thinking he is going to be one that peaks on Grand Final day and not necesarily in his first lead-up. 

His first-up run last time in was solid down the straight and it seems easy to think that back around a bend he is going to be a better horse.

The small field will suit his turn of foot and if the favourite is paddling late, Rampant Lion will be attacking him on the line.

Blue Diamond Preview (C&G) 2022 Value Bet - Michelotti

The Griffiths & de Lock stable love to have a runner in this event and do so once again with a gelding who finished behind city winner Counttheheadlights in his first jumpout.

We know that form is goo,  but what I like is Michelotti improved off of that and won a Moe trial last week in prep for this race.

Fitness will not be the issue, it is more a matter of whether he has the class that the top three in betting do look to have.
