Mystic Journey draws wide in Makybe Diva Stakes

Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes favourite, Mystic Journey, will need to overcome a wide gate (10) at Flemington if she’s to make it eight wins in a row.

The Adam Trinder-trained mare jumped from barrier 13 in the All-Star Mile at this track and trip and proved too strong for her rivals despite sitting deep throughout.

Other leading hopes to have also drawn wide include: Scales Of Justice (9), Harntell (11), Mr Quickie (12), Rostropovich (13), Humidor (14) and Night’s Watch (15).

Damien Oliver won last year’s Makybe Diva Stakes aboard Grunt and will be looking for back-to-back wins in the event with the Chris Waller-trained Night’s Watch, while stablemate King’s Will Dream will be aiming to go one better after finishing runner-up in 2018.
