Extreme Choice in the Blue Diamond Stakes

Extreme Choice is set to return to the racecourse for only his second career start in the Blue Diamond Stakes, where he can be backed to bring his tally up to two wins from two. The Mick Price-trained two-year-old was so impressive in his racecourse debut at Caulfield, where he scored by over four lengths in the Group Three Chairman's Stakes.

It is very clear from that opening run that Extreme Choice is set for a big future in the sport. He is likely to come on for his debut, so we could see an even better performance at Caulfield for the richest two-year-old race in Victoria, which has a total prize fund of A$1,000,000.

Last year's winner, Pride of Dubai, for trainers Peter and Paul Snowden went on to score in the Group One Inglis Sires at Randwick while, two years ago, Earthquake was successful for the Godolphin operation.

Extreme Choice can at the time of writing be backed at 7-4 at the time of writing to win the Blue Diamond Stakes. Caulfield racecourse, where the race takes place, is regarded as one of the best racecourses in Australia. Do look out for the dress code for the meeting, though, and check out all the information on the website with regards to events during the day. There are a whole host of family activities whilst, if you want to continue your day after the races finish, look out for one of the many casinos in the area.

The biggest rival to Extreme Choice in this year's Blue Diamond Stakes appears to be his stablemate Flying Artie. He recently scored at Caulfield in a Group Three contest where he got the better of Star Turn in a photo by the official distance of a head.

Stable jockey Damien Oliver is expected to side with Extreme Choice when he makes the decision over which horse to ride in the Blue Diamond Stakes which is a big clue over the comparison of the two horse at home.

Flying Artie suffered a defeat at Flemington when he made his racecourse debut, albeit by just a short head on that occasion.

The New Zealand-bred Samara Dancer is also expected to be one of the leading contenders at Caulfield. Like Extreme Choice, the two-year-old from Phillip Stokes' yard has also just had the one run so far in his career. She wore blinkers in his success over 1100m to break his maiden tag at the first time of asking.

Although there are also some unknowns set to line up at Caulfield for the Blue Diamond Stakes, from what we have seen from the runners so far, Extreme Choice has looked the most impressive. If he can build on that opening win, he could prove very hard to stop.
