September 8, 2016

flemington racingThe Darren Weir & Team Hayes stables appear to hold all the cards in the 2016 Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington on Saturday, dominating betting for the Group 1 race.

Online bookmaker Sportsbet has Darren Weir’s brilliant sprinter and last start Memsie Stakes winner, Black Heart Bart, the raging $2.10 favourite.

Another Weir runner Palentino, is a solid second favourite at $6.00, with stablemate and Melbourne Cup victor Prince Of Penzance, not fancied at all at $67 outsider.

The David Hayes & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Rising Romance is Weir’s main danger to another Group 1 success according to punters.

The classy mare is $9.00, and the only other runner under double figure odds.

“Weir is to Melbourne what Chris Waller is to Sydney and he looks to have a stranglehold on the Makybe Diva. Black Heart Bart was well backed in the Memsie and punters are spending up again, but Palentino is also popular,” said’s Ben Bulmer.

Interesting Makybe Diva Stakes runners from a Caulfield Cup & Melbourne Cup point of view are $13.00 Tarzino, $13.00 Entirely Platinum and $15.00 Alpine Eagle.
