Race 7 No. 9 Diamond Effort

Her second placing behind Pippie now looks outstanding form for this benchmark 78. Last start she ran a very well behind Dawn Dawn at Caulfield last week and she looks to have found a suitable benchmark 78 to break through in Sunday.

Two starts ago the four-year-old was well backed to beat Pippie, but there was no shame in going down to this potential superstar.

Last start she drew barrier one which was not ideal for her racing pattern and how the track was playing so for her to finish just two lengths off of the winner, that was a very good effort.

If Diamond Effort can bring her last two starts to this race third-up, I do not see her being beaten.

Race 1 No. 13 Alexander Hamilton

I was taken by this galloper's last-start effort behind a smart one called Shepard. 

He had a faster split than the winner between the 400m and 200m running 11.72 off the back of a very slow speed, showing he has a nice turn of foot. The only problem is this was not a true staying test but being a Kiwi bred horse I am still expecting him to run through the line over 2200m.

There does not look to be a super strong pace early so we may find that the race could be run as it did for Alexander Hamilton last time, letting him show his turn of foot.
