Extreme Choice early favourite for 2016 Blue Diamond Stakes

January 13, 2016

racing-protectionistThe 2016 Blue Diamond Stakes will take place on Saturday 27th February 2016 at Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne and online bookmaker Sportsbet is reporting one-way traffic for Mick Price trained colt Extreme Choice.

The 2yo son of Not A Single Doubt opened at $15.00, but after his classy debut win at Randwick last month he’s firmed into the $5.00 favourite.

Brilliant Magic Millions 2yo Classic winner Capitalist, trained by Peter & Paul Snowden, is second favourite at $6.50 and has received little backing, with that colt almost certainly heading to the Golden Slipper.

Hell Of An Effort, unbeaten in two starts, also has plenty of admirers. The Reward for Effort two-year-old has tightened from $15 into $10.00.

“Extreme Choice was super impressive winning at Randwick and he’ll be back on his home track for the Diamond,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

“He’s been well backed and is the best supported runner ahead of Hell Of An Effort.”
