Brad Rawiller riding Black Heart Bart wins the Memsie Stakes

Nominations have been extended to 10:00am Tuesday, September 6, following just 14 entries for Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.

Last fortnight’s Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) winner Black Heart Bart has been nominated by trainer Darren Weir, along with stablemates Palentino and Prince Of Penzance who finished 5th and 11th respectively.

Black Heat Bart is yet to be tested beyond 1400m in six starts for Weir, but was Group 2 placed over 2100m in Perth.

The son of Blackfriars was increasing the margin with every stride in the Memsie Stakes and is the one they have to beat on Saturday.

Top mare Rising Romance finished runner-up in the Memsie and also finished a narrow 2nd to Fawkner in the 2015 Makybe Diva Stakes.

She had the blinkers off for her first-up run, and a return of the blinkers could see her improve enough to test Black Heart Bart.

As well as Rising Romance, Lindsay Park trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig have also entered Tashbeeh  and He Or She who finished 4th and 7th in the Memsie.

Other Memsie runners to be nominated for the Makybe Diva include: Alpine Eagle (6th), Tarzino (8th), Sofia Rosa (10th) and Tally (12th).

Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup hopefuls Happy Trails and Our Ivanhowe are nominated to kick off their spring campaigns, while Ayers Rock and Entirely Platinum make up the remainder of the entries.
