Best Bets – Sat 16th Sept
MAKYBE DIVA STAKES
Hard to go past MR BRIGHTSIDE again this week. He proved too good for them in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes a fortnight ago and should be able to keep winning. Drawn to sit off Alligator Blood and should prove too strong last 200m.
LET'S ELOPE STAKES
We finally get to see AMELIA'S JEWEL at Flemington and she has come up with the visitor's draw out in the car park! She trialed beautifully over in the west before coming east and worked the house down on Tuesday morning at Flemington. She is unbeaten first-up and she will enjoy running home on the wide open spaces. She looks a class above this field.
BOBBIE LEWIS QUALITY
I'm quite confident BENEDETTA can measure up to them here in this Group 2 event. She just loves the straight here at headquarters and her recent effort at Caulfield last time out, sitting three wide the trip and then powering away over the last 50m was one of a very classy mare.
PEACHESTER LODGE HANDICAP
HOLD ON HONEY is a very consistent gelding who gets his chance to break back in the winners stall again here. Third up today and drawn low to boot through or sit off the pace, he should look the winner at some stage in the straight and hopefully be able to hold them off at the wire.
Forgiving the first-up performance from BABY PARIS and jumping on board again. With the rain about, she loves the soft going and generally performs well second-up. She looks better than her opposition and should be hard to toss.
