I Am Immortal on watch list for Blue Diamond Stakes

After taking out the colts and geldings' division of the Blue Diamond Previews at Caulfield on Saturday, I Am Immortal is on the watch list to win the Blue Diamond Stakes on 23rd February.

Trainer Anthony Freeman admitted he was pleased with the performance of the new recruit and said the horse has come on leaps and bounds to add to the natural ability he has.

"He's just come on the scene in the last few weeks," Freedman said. "We haven't really done a lot with him to be perfectly honest. He's just a naturally gifted sort of colt."

Jockey Ben Melham agreed the horse was hugely promising but it’s interesting the jockey feels I Am Immortal needs to be a ittle more relaxed in his job.

"He's a good quality colt," Melham said. "He's very fast and has a big action but he just wants to get it over and done with a tad quick.

"He's not screwed down yet and I think he'll learn a lot from that and get 1100(m) but 1200(m) with high pressure, it will be the only query with him.

"If he can come back a little bit and harness his energy, he's a top colt."

I Am Immortal is now $11.00 to win the Blue Diamond Stakes on 23rd February, with Brooklyn Hustle at $4.50 and Tassort at $7.00. Prices which are subject to change are available to Australian punters at Bet365.
