A smart field of Cox Plate-bound hopefuls is engaged for this season’s Group 1 $750,000 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) that takes place over the mile at HQ on Saturday.

Drawn well in barrier five for jockey Mark Zahra, who rode Palentino (2016) to a recent win in the race, is seven-year-old Deep Impact entire Fierce Impact.

Smith’s Japanese-bred galloper has been backed in from $5.50 to $4.80 in the latest Makybe Diva Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au to win for the first time since November last year.

He added to his future value at stud completing a Group 1 double last spring enjoying back-to-back victories in the Toorak Handicap and Cantala Stakes both over 1600m at Caulfield and Flemington respectively.

It was a frustrating autumn for the galloper who recorded a subsequent two further Group 1 minor placings plus the close fourth in the $5 million The All-Star Mile in the autumn before things went amiss when eight to Tofane in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) coming back in distance.

Fierce Impact kicked off his Cox Plate 2020 bid in the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on August 22 and was impressive first-up going down just a quarter-length when third to Verry Elleegant.

Second-up back up to a mile at Flemington and he looks a genuine winning hope in an intriguing edition of the Makybe Diva on Saturday.

Heading him in the markets is the easing Danny O’Brien-trained favourite Russian Camelot, the all-in Cox Plate top fancy out from $3.50 to $4 to win first-up.

Drawn wide in barrier 14 for jockey Damien Oliver, the Irish-bred Camelot entire makes his four-year-old debut and races for the first time since winning the Group 1 SA Derby (2500m) at Morphettville on May 9.

Steady at Makybe Diva Stakes odds of $6 is the in-form WA-based mare Perfect Jewel in barrier two for jockey William Pike.

The Grant & Alana Williams-trained Redoute’s Choice six-year-old has won three of her past four including a lead-up Caulfield success against her own kind in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes.

SA Derby runner-up from the autumn, Dalasan ($9) rounds out the single-figure chances and will be ridden by Jordon Childs third-up.

The ultra-consistent son of Dalakhani comes off back-to-back minor placings back in Adelaide as the beaten favourite in both the Group 3 Spring Stakes (2nd) and Listed Leon Macdonald Stakes (3rd).

Childs replaces Jason Holder aboard the talented prospect and is thrilled to partner the proven Flemington performer who won the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) as a three-year-old on this day 12 months ago.
