2018 Makybe Diva Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Taking the younger horse in the Tips and Race Preview of the 2018 Makybe Diva Stakes, Kementari may get the right run in the race and he is at $3.80.

Jon Snow goes forward. Suspect we see Black Heart Bart press on from out wide and Happy Clapper can go with him.

KEMENTARI looks like landing in a great spot here, stalking the first couple in running. The Memsie form looks key. Nothing between the first five across the line there. Kementari worked wide and just missed in a well run race. Big change here could be the tempo and it may just play to Kementari.

KINGS WILL DREAM and HUMIDOR are both seen as better suited at the Flemington mile but both look like being closer to last than first in the run. Could make the task tougher. Happy Clapper was well held in the Memsie but he's better than that and the potential change of tempo could be a big positive for him as well.

1st – 11 Kementari

2nd – 10 Kings Will Dream

3rd – 3 Humidor

4th – 1 Happy Clapper

2018 Danehill Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Sticking with the form from last time in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2018 Danehill Stakes, Native Soldier just has to back that up and is $3.20.

Tavisan and Ef Troop are prominent on the far side and Native Soldier is going to be rolling along on the near side.

NATIVE SOLDIER was terrific last time. Rolled along at a good clip and just kept going. Smashed those behind him there and while there is a bit more depth to this he looks the one that they all have to beat.

MARCEL FROM MADRID had the pattern against first time out at the Valley. Better suited back to his home track here. Nice horse in the making.

OCEAN KNIGHT ran well in the same race at the Valley. He will want further soon enough but a nice horse worth keeping safe against these. Ef Troop may bounce back.

1st – 3 Native Soldier

2nd – 2 Marcel From Madrid

3rd – 11 Ocean Knight

4th – 4 Ef Troop

2018 Bobbie Lewis Quality: Tips and Race Preview

A good Flemington horse leads the Tips and Race Preview for the 2018 Bobbie Lewis Quality. Rich Charm loves the straight and is a $3.80 chance.

I'm Wesley and Dothraki look like being the pair at the head of proceedings. RICH CHARM got back to the races and showed that he had put a setback behind him with a typically good effort in The Heath last time. Strong return and well set up for this now.

HEY DOC should also improve over the 1200m here after an even effort at 1000m first up. Doubt the high pressure scamper around the Valley was ideal for him. Gets a chance to travel here and should be in the finish.

KEMONO did enough at his Australian debut and will run well along with First Among Equals through the same race.

1st – 4 Rich Charm

2nd – 1 Hey Doc

3rd – 7 Kemono

4th – 6 First Among Equals

2018 Let’s Elope Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Those at the top front the Tips and Race Preview for the 2018 Let’s Elope Stakes. Bella Martini is ready to fire even from wide and she is at $5.50.

Pace can come from out wide with I Am A Star and Bella Martini pressing across. BELLA MARTINI wasn't able to build her momentum when she needed to first up but she ran right through the line and she's drawn to be rolling on the pace today. Best win to this point came over the Flemington 1400m and she gets a chance to repeat that feat.

I AM A STAR fits a similar mould. She's also a Kewney winner at the course and distance and looks suited crossing to be on speed from out wide here.

LA BELLA DIOSA ran a cracker first up. Straight to 1400m but it's a good trip for her. She's a big threat. Merriest and Miss Gunpowder should run well.

1st – 2 Bella Martini

2nd – 1 I Am A Star

3rd – 9 La Bella Diosa

4th – 8 Merriest
