2018 MAKYBE DIVA STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Jon Snow goes forward. Suspect we see Black Heart Bart press on from out wide and Happy Clapper can go with him.

KEMENTARI looks like landing in a great spot here, stalking the first couple in running. The Memsie form looks key. Nothing between the first five across the line there. Kementari worked wide and just missed in a well run race. Big change here could be the tempo and it may just play to Kementari.

KINGS WILL DREAM and HUMIDOR are both seen as better suited at the Flemington mile but both look like being closer to last than first in the run. Could make the task tougher. Happy Clapper was well held in the Memsie but he's better than that and the potential change of tempo could be a big positive for him as well.

Race Synopsis: Grunt, the Australian Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) winner in March, returned to Flemington to record his second Group 1 success and his fifth win in eight starts. The Mick Price-trained four-year-old entire settled back in fifth place, behind a good tempo (first 1000m 59.61). He moved up to take the lead at the 200m and then went on to score quite impressively by two lengths and in quick time (1:34.91). Kings Will Dream settled back in seventh place from his wide barrier (10), commenced a good run on turning for home and kept running on well for second, without troubling the winner. Jon Snow travelled well in third place, on the rails, got along the inner on turning for home and kept fighting on well for third in promising effort at his second run this preparation. Kementari raced in sixth place (one off the rails), tracking the eventual winner. He put in his bid at the 300m and then kept fighting on for (2.6 lengths) fourth. Happy Clapper raced outside the free-running leader (Black Heart Bart) but was hindered by that runner in the straight and the battled on well for (2.7 lengths) fifth.
