His father, Murray, turned Diademe into a group 1 winner in New Zealand and now Bjorn Baker can add further value to the mare before she heads to the breeding barn — but not before giving away significant weight to her rivals in the Dark Jewel Classic.

New Zealand’s Breeders Stakes winner will have her second Australian start — and her first under Baker jnr’s care — when she concedes five kilograms to the entire field in the feature race at the stand-alone meeting at Scone on Saturday. But Baker was pleasantly surprised when Diademe was allotted just 59kg, with her 13 other rivals to carry the minimum 54kg. Among those are six other black-type winners to date, including Fine Bubbles, Bound For Earth, Rose Of Choice, Scorpio Queen, My Sabeel and Mamwaazel.
