The only emergency in the race Sheer Madness has drawn barrier seven and if he fails to gain a start Catchy will move in one spot to twelve.

Catchy is one of six runners the Lindsay Park team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will saddle up in the Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes with Tulip (Damien Oliver) the only youngster to draw a single figure barrier at 8 while Wait For No One (Regan Bayliss) drew barrier 10, Formality (Ryan Moore) 12, Muraahib (Steven Arnold) 15 and Will’s Bid (Damian Lane) 16.

The Robert Smerdon trained Property with Joao Moreira to ride drew nicely at barrier three and trainer Ciaron Maher was delighted with Jukebox’s draw at gate four.

“Pretty happy with him” Maher said.

“Four is perfect. It is an even lot of horses I reckon it would be an advantage to posy up handy in the one one.”

Trainer Tony McEvoy’s three runners came up with a mixed bag at the barrier drew with Azazel with Kerrin McEvoy to ride drawing the rails, Roomooz with Dwayne Dunn drew five while Aspect with Luke Currie booked to ride drawing near the outside at fourteen.

Co-trainers Peter and Paul Snowden also had to share the good with the bad after Taking Aim drew barrier six and Pariah (Blake Shinn) coming up with gate eleven while the Mick Price trained Cao Cao drew nicely at two.

The Clinton McDonald trained Spoils (Ben Melham) drew the outside barrier at seventeen and Blondie from the Brendan McCarhty stable came up with gate nine in the Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes.
