Makybe Diva Stakes Tips & Preview

Makybe Diva Stakes Tips


Looking for Makybe Diva Stakes tips on Saturday, September 12? Our form analyst previews the Flemington Group 1 and gives his best bets and predictions.


The A-graders are gearing up for spring carnival majors and will be looking to launch into contention with top performances at Flemington on Saturday.

Danny O’Brien produces his big three with Melbourne Cup winner Vow And Declare, Kennedy Oaks winner Miami Bound and South Australian Derby winner Russian Camelot resuming from a spell.

Each have enormous potential this spring but will undoubtedly be suited over further, and I’m willing to take on the favourite Russian Camelot.

There are a select few runners that have produced personal best efforts around the mile and look primed for this race, and these are the horses I want to focus on.


So Si Bon was one of my selections in the Memsie Stakes and disappointed finishing 5th. He has the highest PB of any horse in the race having gone 17.6 lengths quicker than standard BM when 2nd in the Memsie Stakes last year.

He gets blinkers back on and was far from disgraced last start going 12 lengths quicker than BM which is the strongest last start performance of any runner who has run this campaign.

Gatting, Kings Will Dream, Fierce Impact, Dalasan and Harlem are standouts on personal best figures around this trip, and It’s one of these runners that really appeals.


The Matthew Smith-trained Fierce Impact is a horse that always improves out of sight second-up.

In three of his four previous preparations, he improved by 5.6, 3.2, 6.7 lengths second-up on BM figures.

Last preparation his BM rating was lower second-up, but that was due to a slow speed where they went 3.5 lengths slower than BM to the 600m.

However, Fierce Impact came home 10.1 lengths quicker than BM on that occasion, which was his highest rating last 600m, so while the overall performance rated lower than usual, he clearly did improve but was in an unsuitably run race.

First-up this campaign, Fierce Impact resumed with a 3rd placing in the Winx Stakes (1400m) where he went 11.8 lengths quicker than BM which is his best ever first-up run.

If he takes his usual second-up improvement into Saturday’s race, and there is no reason he shouldn’t based on previous figures, he is clearly the one to beat.

As far as the speed map goes, Gailo Chop should run them along at above average tempo, and from barrier 5, Fierce Impact will settle back in the field and get every chance to finish over the top of them with the long Flemington straight.

So Si Bon looks over the odds at $27 and goes in as the best Value Bet of the race.
