Star New Zealand mare Melody Belle has drawn barrier 16 for Saturday’s Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington.

Trained by Jamie Richards, five-year-old mare Melody Belle captured a fourth-straight Group 1 on Derby Day when winning the Empire Rose Stakes (1600m) by 1.5 lengths. She had barrier 13 on that occasion and has a similar draw for the Mackinnon. 

Chris Waller’s Kings Will Dream has barrier 13 to contend with. Humidor draws alongside in barrier 12.



Inside barriers went to Night’s Watch in one and Cape Of Good Hope in two.
