Punters' pal Boban has opened the $4.40 favourite with TAB for Saturday’s Group 1 Makybe Diva Stakes at Flemington. 

The resuming Fawkner looks likely to give the most competition, next in the market at $7.00 ahead of the likes of Alpine Eagle, Hi World, Volkstok’n’barrell and Weary, all priced at $8.00.

“Boban is holding favouritism ahead of Fawkner who is racing for the first time since finishing 10th in the Melbourne Cup behind Protectionist,” said TAB’s Nick Quinn.

In Rosehill’s Group 1, the Golden Rose, Exosphere heads the market at $3.00 with Press Statement looking the next most likely at $3.80.
