Makybe Diva Stakes Nominations - Kementari heads 17 entries

  • 17 entries for the Flemington Group 1

The James Cummings-trained Kementari has featured among 17 nominations for Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington. 

12 Group 1 winners have been nominated for the Makybe Diva Stakes, including the Darren Weir-trained Humidor who won this race last year. The six-year-old gelding went onto finish a brave second to Winx in the Cox Plate and has already won the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) this preparation. 

The Mick Price-trained Grunt will be trying to reproduce his victory in the Australian Guineas in the Autumn over this track and distance when he faces these top-line milers. 

The Patrick Webster-trained Happy Clapper has long been debated as the second-best horse in the country. His last run at Flemington was a second in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) behind Tosen Stardom. 

Chris Waller has nominated his star four-year-olds Unforgotten and Youngstar. The Chelmsford Stakes winner Unforgotten has looked like a superstar winning in Sydney and will look to bring that same form when she comes to Melbourne for the first time.
