Field of six for Blue Sapphire Stakes

The feature of the Melbourne Racing Club’s meeting on Wednesday, the $350,000, Group 3 Catanach’s Jewellers Blue Sapphire Stakes (1200m), has a field of just six headed by the Grahame Begg trained Written Tycoon colt Written By.

The colt is racing to add a Sapphire to his Diamond win over the same distance on February 24th and with his track record three wins from three starts the collection looks like it will be expanding. Jordon Childs rides as usual and they have barrier two.

The rest of the field is Encryption, Performer, Tony Nicconi, Smart Elissim and Spielberg.

The track is currently rated a Good 4, however the forecast for Wednesday is for a cloudy day with a possible storm and 6mm-15mm at 21c. The rail is in the true position.
