The Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) barrier draw was announced on Tuesday evening with a field of 16 to contest the rich two-year-old sprint at Caulfield.

Unbeaten two-year-old filly Enthaar has drawn wide for the $1.5 million Blue Diamond Stakes after drawing barrier 14 with Mark Zahra to ride. Trained by Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, Enthaar has won both career starts with both coming at Group 3 level in the Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) and Chairman’s Stakes (1000m).

The Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra-trained two-year-old colt General Beau fared better at the barrier draw and will jump from gate three. In-form jockey Jamie Kah has ridden the colt in all four starts where they have saluted three times, including both lead ups in the Blue Diamond.

James Cummings prepares two-year-old colt Anamoe for Godolphin and he narrowly missed against General Beau in his latest outing. Anamoe has drawn the car park in barrier 15.

Stablemate Ingratiating has a good draw after coming up with barrier seven. The colt has won two of his four starts with the other two runs being second-placed efforts, including a 2.25-length defeat against race favourite Enthaar.
