Blue Diamond Stakes Final Field and Barrier Draw - Loving Gaby draws an outside barrier

  • Favourites draw wide
  • Outsider barriers are no disadvantage in the Blue Diamond
Loving Gaby draws wide.

The Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Loving Gaby will start from barrier 12 for Damian Lane, as her stablemate Bella Rosa jumps from barrier 10 for Linda Meech. 

The likely leader in the race I Am Immortal has drawn barrier 9 for Ben Melham. Trainer Mick Price spoke to RSN 927’s Racing Pulse on Tuesday Morning, saying he’d love for Shotmaker to draw a gate for a soft run in transit. That didn’t happen, as Shotmaker drew barrier 14. 

Two former Blue Diamond favourites have drawn in the middle of the track, with the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Catch Me jumping from barrier 8 for Dwayne Dunn, while the longtime favourite Brooklyn Hustle has drawn barrier 11.

Team Godolphin combine with Craig Williams to partner Athiri who has drawn barrier 14, while Blue Diamond Prelude winner Lyre should find a nice position in running from barrier five for jockey Luke Currie.

Outside barriers are often no disadvantage over the 1200m start at Caulfield. In the last 15 years of the Blue Diamond, barriers 1-3 have provided only one winners and two placegetters, whereas barrier 10+ have provided six winners and 14 placegetters.
