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 $2.30 with bet365, Imperatriz heads the betting for the 2024 Newmarket Handicap, which she'll arrive to second-up following a return victory in the Black Caviar Lightning.

Espiona caught the eye late when third behind Imperatriz and Private Eye in the Black Caviar Lightning, while the step to 1200m and a switch to handicap conditions are two big positives here.

The Chris Waller-trained mare has won her last two second-up attempts.

Espiona shares a $7.50 quote with Buenos Noches, who finished a half-length second to Imperatriz over this track/trip in last year's Champions Sprint.

On the fourth line of betting is Magic Time ($9), a four-year-old who rounded out her spring campaign with a win in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Three of her five wins have come over 1200m, although she hasn't contested a straight-course sprint, with her Flemington triumph coming over 1400m at start two.

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.
