Denman Diva ($four early) – by Denman out of a Danehill mare – is already a three-time winner from simply seven begins, having received two from three contemporary. However she hasn’t run since flopping badly as a short-priced favorite again in late autumn.
Actually, you need to go additional again to the spring of 2017 when she was final flying by her short-course grades, however setbacks are a part of racing, and for that purpose she looms as one of the vital intriguing runners returning within the Riverina at present. Definitely, if a latest close-up trial efficiency is any indication, Denman Diva appears to be like able to rediscover her greatest.
The rusted-on coaching partnership of Ron Weston and former main jockey John Nisbet saddle her up at class three stage in Race four over 1000m. And with the latter’s daughter Kayla Nisbet doing the steering, she could get the first-up ‘‘map’’ to swimsuit.
Drawn in eight, she is more likely to get a pleasant drag throughout behind the flying last-start Canberra winner Olifants ($four) who has loads of early pace and will probably be determined to seek out the entrance.
