Leading the charge is Coleman, trained by Matt Laurie. This nicely-bred Pierata colt boasts a perfect record (2-0) and enjoys course specialist status at Caulfield.

After impressive victories in the Listed Debutant Stakes and the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes, he aims to become the first horse since Extreme Choice (2016) to complete the Chairman’s Stakes – Blue Diamond Stakes double.

Currently the favourite at $3.90 through Ladbrokes, he’ll be ridden by Ben Melham from barrier seven.

Lady Of Camelot, trained by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, emerges as a strong contender at $4.80 in the markets at Ladbrokes.

This Written Tycoon filly aims to become the first Blue Diamond winner since Lyre (2019) to defeat the colts.

With an eye-catching debut and a dominant win in the Group 3 Widden Stakes, she boasts Sydney form and draws well in barrier four with Adam Hyeronimus in the saddle. However, she’ll need to adapt to Melbourne racing and outmuscle the boys.

Peter & Paul Snowden bring two promising colts to the race with Bodyguard ($6.50) and High Octane ($7.50). Bodyguard seeks to become the first colt since Written By (2018) to win the Prelude-Blue Diamond double. High Octane looks to bounce back from a fifth-place finish in the Prelude.

For value seekers key fillies at better odds include the Peter Moody & Katherine Coleman-trianed Chairman’s Stakes runner-up Eneeza ($12), Kuroyanagi ($15), and Matisse ($20) offer potential upsets.

The race is set to run as Caulfield Race 8 at 4:15pm (AEDT) on Saturday’s 10-race card.
