Today I’m heading to Bendigo for one ride. The rail is out three metres and the track is rated in the good range.
Race 3 is the TAC Be Races Ready Three-Years-Old Fillies Maiden Plate over 1000 metres, my ride here is DIAMONDS INTHE SKY who is trained by Peter Moody. This daughter of Zoustar is raced by the McMaster family. She had one start at the end of her two-year-old season where she finished less than a length-and-a-half behind Parlophone at Sandown on heavy ground in fourth placing. Parlophone franked that form by going on to win the Listed Lightning Stakes in Adelaide at her next start. DIAMONDS INTHE SKY looks to be preparing nicely for her first-up run and I’ve seen a recent jumpout at Pakenham where she showed good speed and looked solid in her effort. This will be my first ride on her and I’m looking forward to seeing how she returns this preparation and, on her form, and recent jumpout she is the horse to beat.
