Begg sees Blue Diamond hope from wide draw

TWO of the key players in this Saturday's $1.5 million Blue Diamond Stakes, Written By and Kinky Boom, drew poorly at Tuesday morning's barrier draw.

Grahame Begg said the undefeated Written By had come through his last run in great fashion and he believed he could overcome the bad barrier.

Begg said although Written By had drawn barrier 18, he had good gate speed.

Begg also pointed out that Written By had also drawn out in his previous two wins.

"He likes to balance up and get into a good rhythm," Begg said.

Tony McEvoy's Kinky Boom drew barrier 14.

Lindsay Park's undefeated colt Long Leaf was well served drawing barrier seven.
