Lo­cal Di­a­mond hope

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

IM­PRES­SIVE de­but win­ner Brook­lyn Hus­tle has been in­stalled TAB favourite for the Group 1 Blue Di­a­mond Stakes for two-year-olds.

The Ja­son War­ren-trained filly, owned by Gnar­warre’s Rose­mont Stud, made a big im­pres­sion when she over­came a slow start at Moonee Val­ley on De­cem­ber 1 in a 1000m race to draw clear of her ri­vals and beat Yes Yes Yes by two lengths.

Brook­lyn Hus­tle was posted at $6 yes­ter­day in the TAB fixed odds mar­ket for the $1.5 mil­lion Blue Di­a­mond (1200m) at Caulfield on Fe­bru­ary 23.

Golden Slip­per favourite Tas­sort is on the sec­ond line at $8 but the James Cum­mingstrained colt is listed as doubt­ful for the Mel­bourne race.

Tas­sort’s sta­ble­mate Athiri is one of four horses on the third line at $11, the oth­ers be­ing Magic Mil­lions win­ner Ex­hil­a­rates, who is un­likely, the Dar­ren Weir-trained Yes Yes Yes and the Peter and Paul Snow­den-trained Catch Me.

Yes Yes Yes was the one­time favourite for Sat­ur­day’s Magic Mil­lions Clas­sic but was scratched after an ar­du­ous float trip from Mel­bourne.

Catch Me was an im­pres­sive win­ner of the Group 3 Gim­crack Stakes at Rand­wick in late Sep­tem­ber in her only race ap­pear­ance.
