The Diamond Cup – 22nd April 2017

Diamond Cup

Race field


Roll With It has been there or thereabouts recently. Moonlight Stables and Janiece Leete team up and they have brought Another Vice to the track. She is on the up and has been placed in six of her seven starts.

Woodchuckers is a master on these big days and saddles Grand Prix Stakes winner, Libra Starz. The 4yo daughter of Tiffy Pumper lacks the experience over the epic distance, but can definitively challenge for the places. The smart Nihilator mare Epic Muddy Hanover had a disappointing run for the Happy Skipper Stable in the Grand Prix de Paris, when a relatively quiet sixth. A much better effort is expected here.

The well-bred Our Buckwheat caught the eye in his last cup run when strolling away and beating most of today’s runners. Let’s not complicate matters. If Our Buckwheat is back to good health he should just about win it.

On their official ratings it is difficult to fancy Spectate, Barman and Hawke Cactus here. The Swindin bred product, A-go-go Thalassa is always thereabouts and she has shown that she finds the epics well within her range. She is bound to be thereabouts, even though unlikely to win.
