History says no. Very rare to see the double successfully done. Makybe Diva is the only horse this century to carry 57kg+ and win on the first Tuesday in November. But with the greatest respect to the field, there is a lot of dead wood to this final field and it seems the longer the race goes, the better he gets. He’s the one they have to beat.

Short Summary: If it wasn’t for the internationals, he could easily be odds on. He’s the one to beat.
Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m), September 11 2021, Flemington, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface
Gee this was a great win. Admittedly, the initiative from Prebble to lead did help greatly, but that said, he was first up and there to be run down, but found plenty under pressure and was much too good over a trip clearly short of his best.
Turnbull Stakes (2000m), October 2 2021, Flemington, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
Brilliant performance from the front and this stamped him as clearly the one to beat in the Caulfield Cup. Led, copped pressure but he found and on the line, was holding his rivals and getting away from them in an outstanding win.
Caulfield Cup (2400m), October 16 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
Stunning, stunning win. Prebble made the move 1000m out, coming three wide, ensuring that there would be no bad luck. But it was just the arrogance of applying the pressure before the turn, then sustaining the gallop…can definitely understand why he’s the one to beat on Tuesday.
