Craig Williams riding Hartnell wins Race 7, P.B. Lawrence Stakes

Godolphin’s start galloper Hartnell has featured among 18 nominations for Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) at Flemington.

The seven-year-old son of Authorized resumed this preparation with a dominant win in the PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m), and will be looking to add another Flemington Group 1 to his resume having claimed the Turnbull Stakes last spring.

Last year’s Makybe Diva Stakes runner-up, Black Heart Bart, finished 3rd to Hartnell in the PB Lawrence before failing to run Vega Magic down in the Memsie Stakes (1400m).

Black Heart Bart is one of three nominations for trainer Darren Weir who has also entered last start winner Gailo Chop and Australian Cup winner Humidor.

David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig lead the nomination charge with four horses including He Or She, Jacquinot Bay, Seaburge and Ventura Storm.

Sydney’s leading trainer, Chris Waller, has nominated Foxplay who almost defeated Winx in the Warwick Stakes, and the much improved Tom Melbourne who has finished runner-up in two starts this campaign.
