First markets for the Blue Diamond released on Tuesday contain an even bigger trap than usual for pre-post punters.
The Diamond betting is headed by Adelaide youngster Miracles Of Life at $6 with Diamond Glow next at $11.
But neither horse is entered for the race with connections required to pay a late-entry fee of $55,000 if they want to start.
Miracles Of Life has been brilliant in her only two starts, winning by 5-1/2 lengths on debut and nine lengths at her only other start.
Diamond Glow, trained by Peter Moody, won at Caulfield in January at her only appearance.
The $1 million Blue Diamond is one of three Group One races run at Caulfield on February 23.
