Diamond Jubilee Stakes (Group 1)
The Aussie colt is a big runner for obvious reasons. He may well be too good. But Due Diligence looks a tasty price, given that he is the one in this field with the real potential of massive improvement in him. We clearly haven’t seen the best of him yet.
Due Diligence was runner-up in this very same race last year. It’s not an easy task for three year olds to race against seasoned top class sprinters, so this was a massive performance. Off the track until his reappearance at the Curragh in April, he didn’t run particularly well but wasn’t right that day as it turned out soon after.
Back to sprinting, with quick ground and a fast pace very likely to suit, one can expect him to peak here today, given how Aiden’s run this week. If he can improve from his three year old form, he has a massive chance to go as close as it gets.
Due Diligence @ 13/2 Coral – 5pts Win
