An interesting Blue Diamond choice faces Damien Oliver over the coming week

An interesting Blue Diamond choice faces Damien Oliver over the coming week and the gun rider made it clear he had a few things to consider after dismounting from Ingratiating at Flemington after the colt had become the latest runner to carry the Royal Blue silks of Godolphin to victory in a two-year-old feature.

Ingratiating’s effort had caught Oliver’s attention.

“I always had an opinion of him since I first rode him,” said Oliver. “I probably had little between him and Anamoe.

“I always thought that he might want some blinkers. We put them on during the week … and you rarely see a horse improve like he did with them, so I was expecting a big show from him today.

“The only concern was he did have 59kg in what looked to be a reasonable sort of race, but he did a very good job.

“I was just camped on the leaders, but he was just going too well,” continued Oliver. “I would have interrupted his rhythm if I held him back anymore, so I just had to go with him.

“I haven’t locked in a Blue Diamond Stakes ride yet. I worked Anamoe in some blinkers this morning as well and had a discussion with James.

“Probable last Saturday I had Anamoe in front, but with the improvement Ingratiating has made in blinkers, it has certainly narrowed the gap, so I don’t think there is a lot between them.

“I’ll have another discussion with James and then see which way we go.”
