2019 Makybe Diva Stakes - Can Mystic Journey Continue Her Winning Ways?

The Makybe Diva Stakes is the major Group One race this weekend.

Mystic Journey is the horse to beat in the Group One Makybe Diva Stakes.

2019 Makybe Diva Stakes - Will Mystic Journey Continue Her Winning Ways?

It is Makybe Diva Stakes Day this weekend at Flemington and it's all about Mystic Journey heading into the Group One event.

The Tasmanian mare will start at a short price and a respectable run will see her already tight odds for the 2019 Cox Plate wound in even further.

Let's take a look at the favourite and her biggest threats this Saturday.

Makybe Diva Stakes Best Bet - Mystic Journey

She is the darling of Australia and could well prove to be the next best horse since Winx this preparation. Scales Of Justice looks the obvious danger here but I question how explosive he would be at Flemington with the longer straight.

What can you say about this girl? She has won her last seven, including the Australian Guineas and All Star Mile, both at this track and trip. She resumed first up with a mighty win in the Lawrence Stakes in what was a race where she easily could have been left flat footed.

Second up last prep she ran on a wet track and was simply powerful beating Hellova Street in the Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes. 

Let's hope she can make it eight on the trot and three Group Ones.

Makybe Diva Stakes Value Bet - Yucatan

Yucatan - $12

Last preparation Yucatan produced an incredible first-up victory before starting unders in the Melbourne Cup

The double figure odds here suggest the market is wary about his first-ever start over the mile.

What makes Yuctan an exciting prospect is his turn of foot, which should make him competitive in any of the three major races this spring as he steps up in trip. 

Owner Nick Williams did say he does not think he can beat the top two in betting, but if they were to have no luck in running Yucatan is a runner that can jump up and cause an upset.
