Melbourne has put on a stellar day for the Makybe Diva Stakes meeting and the Flemington track is currently rated as a good three and should give every horse the opportunity to win from anywhere on the track.

There has been only a handful of scratchings across the entire Flemington card and most races on the field are set to feature close to a capacity field of talented gallopers.

The Flemington card features a number of difficult betting races, but leading online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au is giving punters some insurance by refunding all bets placed on horses that finish second to the starting price favourite!
