2021 Blue Diamond Stakes Betting Odds at Caulfield racecourse

Saturday, 20 February 2021

The Blue Diamond Stakes has been in operation since 1971 and this is a two-year-old race which takes place over a distance of 1,200 metres, with an enormous purse available for the winning connections and we’re looking forward to the 2021 renewal on 20 February.

This Australian race is a Melbourne Racing Club Group 1 Thoroughbred encounter, with Victoria’s richest two-year-old race attracting allcomers due to the big prize money on offer. Tagaloa and Lyre are among the recent winners of the race, with one horse heading the betting market for the latest renewal.

Can Enthaar Oblige as Blue Diamond Stakes Betting Favourite?

Enthaar is trained by Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, with the pair handling this horse for the Emirates Park Syndicate and he has done everything right in his short racing career to date, scoring a success in the Group 3 Keeneland Gimcrack Stakes in October before following this up with a win at Caulfield at the end of January.

"It's a race which has eluded me. I still haven't got over Jukebox (scratched by stewards in 2017 from the Blue Diamond Stakes)," Maher said. "I suppose the natural precocity of her at such a young age is probably the most obvious and exciting thing and she has such a big frame and can obviously use it."

"She was impressive. It's great to have her back and she did it easily. She's on target for the Blue Diamond."

This victory in the Lamaro's Hotel Sth Melbourne Chairman's Stakes was achieved at short odds, with jockey Mark Zahra likely to be on board for the big race and there are punters looking to bet on the antepost horse racing odds and hope that his excellent form continues.

At the time of writing, Enthaar is a best price 5/4 to win the race and could take all the beating, although all the two-year-olds who enter this encounter are relatively inexperienced and it only takes one to emerge from the pack and win.

Who Can Beat Enthaar in the Blue Diamond Stakes?

Dosh is an interesting candidate and the Grahame Begg-trained horse scored in the Group 3 Darley Ottawa Stakes at the beginning of November, with the two-year-old obliging as the 9/2 joint-favourite to win the encounter, while Jordan Childs then rode the charge to victory in the Neds Blue Diamond Preview at Caulfield recently.

Jigsaw is trading as the second favourite with some bookies and looks to have the sort of class needed to win this encounter, while Profiteer and Artorius are other contenders which could go well and run into a place.
