12/02/02 Bel Esprit Shortens to Even Money for Diamond
0210belesprit.jpg (10138 bytes)Star colt Bel Esprit has had his Blue Diamond price slashed even further after another effortless win in the race's Prelude at Caulfield on Sunday.

Leading Melbourne bookmaker Michael Eskander has now marked the colt as an even money favourite for the race to be run on February 23.

Trained by Macedon Lodge's John Symons, the son of Royal Academy extended his unbeaten run on a soft track on Sunday.

0210wtreloar.jpg (12280 bytes)Symons was not surprisingly beaming after the race, in which his $9,000 bargain buy won eased down by a length and a half.

"Bring on the Blue Diamond," Symons told reporters.

Jockey Wayne Treloar didn't have the ideal ride either as the saddle on the two-year-old slipped just before the pair turned for home.

Cool Trent, the best of the beaten brigade behind Bel Esprit, is on the fourth line of betting at $10 along with Leon Corstens' unbeaten filly Bardego. The latter was due to gallop this morning.
