There is still a full field of 16 gallopers set to face off in this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m), set to run as Flemington Race 7 at 4:05pm (AEST) on Saturday afternoon, with the emergency Awesome Rock ($31) getting a run after the early scratching of the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Our Ivanhowe.

Co-trainer Lee Freedman told Racing Ahead this week that German import Our Ivanhowe would shoot for the 2015 Caulfield Cup ballot exemption by running in Saturday week’s Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) instead.

The updated Makybe Diva Stakes odds at, who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on all the odd numbered races at Flemington on Saturday, are led by Chris Waller’s last start Memsie Stakes winner Boban.

Drawn a treat in gate four with Glyn Schofield riding, the in-form six-year-old shoots for his sixth Group 1 win adding to his already impressive $2.79 million in prize money earned to date.

The next best fancied in Makybe Diva Stakes betting are then Tony McEvoy’s High Chaparral four-year-old Alpine Eagle ($6) running at the track for the first time since his second in the Australian Guineas back in early March and market mover Fawkner ($8.50 into $6) who are the only others under $10 for the win.

So can one of the top three salute for the punters or is there an upset Makybe Diva Stakes result on the card from a double priced chance such as Waller’s other runner Weary ($11) who ran fourth to his star stablemate in the Memsie Stakes last time out or the former New Zealand-trained mare Rising Romance ($11)?


#6 Weary ($11)

Weary is third-up here and looks cherry ripe to finally win his first race since the Group 2 Expressway Stakes in Sydney back in January. He was second first-up in the Missile and then fourth in the Memsie when beaten under one and a half lengths and should strip fitter for this. He is yet to race at Flemington and while he is yet to win over a mile from five previous runs, he has winning form up to 1500m so could be ready to make the stretch.


#3 Boban ($4.60)

He dominates in Sydney so why not tip Waller to run the Group 1 quinella in Melbourne on Saturday. Form of Boban is hard to knock after he beat a number of these home in the Memsie Stakes to become a five-time Group 1 winner. He’ll get the run of the race from gate four and has won three from seven over the 1600m. Great gate, firmer track and will be hard to beat as he vies for the same Memsie – Makybe double achieved by Dissident 12 months ago.


#10 Mongolian Khan ($21)

Plenty of livewire chances to finish off the trifecta but looks to be great value in this Kiwi visitor who is high up the markets for next month’s Caulfield Cup over the mile and a half. Murray Baker’s four-year-old hasn’t raced since April in Sydney when he won the Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m) and while he’ll improve on whatever he does first-up here over the 1600m, he has won over the distance before and his seven from nine record is very impressive.
