Leading form analyst Adam Blencowe has Fontiton on top of his 2015 Blue Diamond Stakes tips and he believes that the undefeated filly will start the Group 1 event at Caulfield tomorrow as an odds-on favourite.

Fontiton stamped herself as a filly to watch when she recorded a dominant six lengths victory on debut in the Inglis Banner (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day and she returned to racing with a tough win in the Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) at Sandown on Australia Day before she maintained her place at the top of Blue Diamond Stakes betting markets with an impressive win in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) at Caulfield on February 14.

Blencowe has been most impressed with the three race starts of Fontiton in her racing career to date and he is confident that the Turffontein filly will prove very difficult to beat in the 2015 Blue Diamond Stakes.

“I think the fillies have a pretty clear edge on the boys and Fontiton has a clear edge on the fillies,” Blencowe said.

“I think that she certainly just about picks herself here.

“She is the one to beat and it doesn’t look a hot Blue Diamond by any stretch.

“She will come into the race with the same barrier, the same profile and an identical rating to Miracles Of Life and I think she can improve on that.

“If she can run 116 or 117 she will probably set the bar a little bit high for them.”

Pride Of Dubai is currently available at 2015 Blue Diamond Stakes odds of $6 and Blencowe agrees that the Team Snowden-trained colt is the main danger to Fontiton in the Group 1 event.

Of The Brave has been a big drifter in Blue Diamond Stakes betting markets and Blencowe is happy to leave the undefeated colt out of his selections, but is happy to include the likes of Sampeah and Air Apparent in his trifecta.

“I think that the market is right in saying that Pride Of Dubai is the big danger,” Blencowe said.

“I think that he is the pick of the colts and I would be happy to risk Of The Brave.

“I thought Sampeah was also a good closer and is worth a spot in multiple tickets and Air Apparent might be one at blowout odds.

“I am not going to be too clever and I think that Fontiton is the one.”

Fontiton is currently available at 2015 Blue Diamond Stakes odds of $2.30 and is a clear favourite from Pride Of Dubai ($6), Lake Geneva ($11), Of The Brave ($12) and Stoker ($13).
