Loving Gaby Holds Steady Following Diamond Draw
Potential-laden 2YO filly Loving Gaby has not flinched in the market for Saturday’s Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield, and remained a $4.50 chance on Tuesday. Coming up with barrier 12 might actually be a blessing in disguise for the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained race favourite as she can probably find some cover without expending energy, and stay out of trouble until the field swings for home. Other strong fancies have fared no better with the marble, with Brooklyn Hustle (11) and Athiri (13) drawing either side of Loving Gaby. $101 chance Game Keeper drew the rails. While Catch Me (8) and I Am Immortal (9) are also drawn wider than mid-field, the speedy Vinicunca came up with barrier 4 from where he could get a soft run in transit and make every post a winner at $21.
