Australian horse racing bet of the day - Another win coming up for speedy Diamond on Friday

  • Weight advantage to help Another Diamond.
  • Should improve third-up.
  • Confidence rating: 92%

Trainer Bill Cerchi has got his speedy mare, Another Diamond, absolutely flying and she can rack up her third consecutive win in Race 2, the Total Collision Repairs Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Friday 8am Moonee Valley selection - ANOTHER DIAMOND (6/4, bet365)

The lightly-raced four-year-old daughter of Mint Lane belted her Moonee Valley rivals by four lengths last start and had plenty left in hand.

Not only is she flying and lines up at the same track over slightly further, but she gets in with less weight in the same grade as claiming apprentice Beau Mertens goes aboard.

This should be a sit and steer job for Mertens who will jump from barrier 3 and either control the race of sit outside of Parcel.

If Parcel jumps cleanly, she should lead, although, Another Diamond did have enough early speed to cross General Jackson last start and he’s a speed machine too.

She clocked 56.170 for the 955m trip and compared with some of her rivals, the time stacks up well.

Estaminet was 1.25 lengths from Gun Case two starts back when he recorded 56.650, while Aunty Mo was a further half-length away in 5th place.

Lady Esprit was 3.5 lengths off the pace when Rock’n’Gold scored in 56.470, and she carries 3kg less here and looks the main danger.

However, the way this race will be run puts her at a disadvantage as I can see her getting caught behind the speed and needing luck to get out.

Parcel and Another Diamond will lead with Aunty Mo likely to get caught three wide around that pair or Estaminet and Lady Esprit.

Vegas Ruler should be in last place and will struggle to impact on the race.

Considering, Estaminet goes up 3kg from her 955m run and Aunty Mo goes up 4.5kg, it’s hard to see that pair beating Another Diamond is she replicates her last run with half a kilo less.

Another Diamond also improved at her third and fourth runs last campaign so it’s scary to think she might have more improvement in her.
