Outstanding mare Mystic Journey has featured among 18 nominations for Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington as she aims for eight consecutive victories. 

The Adam Trinder-trained daughter of Needs Further resumed this campaign with a win in the PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield where she looked a bit flat-footed on the turn but wound up best to score from Cliff’s Edge and Hartnell.

She’s unbeaten in two starts at the track and distance having claimed the Group 1 Australian Guineas and $5 million All-Star Mile before going for a break. 

Memsie Stakes winner Scales Of Justice has been nominated as he aims for back-to-back Group 1 wins, while 2017 Makybe Diva Stakes winner Humidor will be aiming to bounce back after finishing more than six lengths off the pace in the Memsie Stakes.

A host of classy stayers have also been nominated to make their spring debut as they work toward races like the Cox Plate, Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup.
