One of the premier days of Melbourne racing is Blue Diamond Day and it was run and won on Saturday with a star studded nine event card, with three majors for the afternoon. There were some really good runs throughout the day, so here are my blackbookers.

Race One: Ladbrokes Mornington Cup Prelude 2000m:

The way the race was run, along with the tailwind in the straight, those on speed were advantaged and Bedford had no chance, but he ran as well as he did sectionals wise. Just beaten by a couple of high class Lloyd Williams runners. I wouldn’t drop off. The first two outstanding for sure, but Bedford a definite big tick.

Race Three: Ladbrokes Zeditave Stakes 1200m:

I think Albumin will be winning races if placed right. Got a fair way back in the run but he ran some excellent splits between the 1000-200, running a freakishly fast 43.87 before blowing out late. Similar grade next time, he will be winning or going very close to winning. Overall form of the race looks suspect, but this bloke looks very likely.

Race Six: Italktarvel Futurity Stakes 1400m:

All about Humidor for me. Market flucs late said he’d run well fresh and he certainly did, running some very good splits late before running out of condition final 2000m. I reckon he could be heading towards the Doncaster Mile/Queen Elizabeth double. Very interesting to see where he goes and how he’ll progress.
