Aryaaf, Dame Giselle and Hanseatic have opened $11 equal favourites with TAB's All In market for the 2020 Group 1 Blue Diamond (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday, February 22nd.
The Hayes and Dabernig trained Epaulette filly Aryaaf made an impression on Melbourne Cup Day when victorious over Muntaseera and Marchena in the Group 3 Ottawa Stakes over 1000m which was the opening race at Flemington on the first Tuesday in November.
Street Boss colt Hanseatic was heavily fancied at Sandown last Saturday and the support was justified as he overpowered his rivals in the listed Merson Cooper Stakes over 1000m.
Hanseatic is trained by Anthony Freedman, who was successful in this year’s Blue Diamond with the filly Lyre.
Even though she has been nominated for the Blue Diamond, Dame Giselle may be saved for the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on March 21st as she has already qualified after winning the Golden Gift at Rosehill on November 9th.
Amongst the $15 chances are Maribyrnong Plate winner Hard Landing, placegetters Baaqyah and Tagaloa and Inglis Banner winner Ideas Man.
