She was unbeaten from five attempts over the Melbourne Spring Carnival and after a string of performances at Moonee Valley, the daughter of I Am Invincible ticked the straight-track box when successful in the Champions Sprint.

At $4.50 with bet365, Imperatriz heads the market for 2024 Newmarket Handicap, while In Secret and I Wish I Win share the second of betting at $7.

While she had to settle for a third in the Champions Sprint behind Imperatriz, In Secret had won her prior two attempts up the Flemington straight, which includes a one-length triumph in the 2023 Newmarket Handicap.

I Wish I Win gave 5kg to In Secret when third in that same Newmarket and the son of Savabeel followed that performance up with a win in the TJ Smith Stakes, which is arguably the strongest sprint race of the entire autumn.

Buenos Noches and Everest winner Think About It ($9) round out the single-figure chances.

Newmarket Handicap Winners

Run under handicap conditions and contested up the Flemington straight over 1200m, the Newmarket Handicap is arguably Melbourne's most prestigious sprinting race.

While champions in Alinghi, Miss Andretti, Weekend Hussler and Black Caviar have saluted at short prices, this feature often lends itself to a long-priced winner, with Wanted ($13), Shamexpress ($15), The Quarterback ($21), Redkirk Warrior ($31), Sunlight ($13), Zoutori ($20) and Roch 'N' Horse ($101) among the recent winners of this event.

With eight wins, the legendary Bart Cummings is the most successful trainer in Newmarket Handicap history, while Damien Oliver leads the jockey tally with three victories.

Zoutori (2021), Roch 'N' Horse (2022) and In Secret (2023) have won the last three editions of the Newmarket Handicap.
