Group Three Betting Guide
Date: Tuesday, November 5, 2024
Location: Flemington Racecourse – Melbourne, Victoria
Prize Money: $200,000
Distance: 1000m

The Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate is a 1000m sprint held at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day each year.

First run in 1871, the time-honoured event boasts a prizepool of $200,000 and is a race restricted to two-year-old horses.

The Maribyrnong Plate was a Principal Race until 1979, then Group 2, before becoming a Group 3 in 2005.

Lately, the victors have not received much attention, but there have been notable sprinters in the past who have triumphed in major races. Nadeem, Bel Esprit, Testa Rossa, Canny Lad, Baguette, and Vain are among the distinguished winners worth mentioning.

The Maribyrnong Plate has been dominated by colts and geldings in recent times, with just two fillies saluting since 2010, Vinicunca (2018) and Real Stolle (2011).

Recent Maribyrnong Plate results

  • Tony & Calvin McEvoy have kicked off their 2023 Melbourne Cup Day in the best possible fashion, taking out the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate for the third time in seven years, as Dublin Down ($10.00) got the better of his less experienced stablemate Blue Stratum ($4.00). The son of Exceedance had already been down the Flemington straight, when on debut in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial, and it was clear that the experience and race fitness gave him the edge on a few of his rivals, including the runner-up. The race favourite Admitted ($2.90) took up the lead from the barrier and appeared to be doing it well as the field got onto the course proper, but as soon as the whips began to crack, the McEvoy gallopers took over and settled down to fight out the finish. Outside of the top two, the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Odinson ($4.80) was a real eye-catcher running home nicely into third place, suggesting that a step up to 1100m or 1200m would be ideal next start.
  • Krakarib, a colt sired by Ribchester, showed remarkable improvement in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate after an unplaced performance in the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes, where he finished behind Zulfiqar during his debut. Under the guidance of jockey Damien Thornton and trainer Simon Zahra, Krakarib took charge of the race from start to finish. Leading the field from the beginning, he secured a decisive victory, crossing the line three-quarters of a length ahead of Little Brose, a colt by Per Incanto.
  • As the saying goes, “you win some, you lose some,” and that proved true for Brereton in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate. Brereton narrowly missed out on victory during his debut in the Listed Debutant Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield on October 9. However, he redeemed himself by claiming the first race on Melbourne Cup Day. Starting as one of the $6 equal favourites, Brereton, ridden by Luke Nolen, emerged triumphant by a mere nose, edging out Renosu ($7.50) in a thrilling finish.
  • Melbourne Cup Day began in style for Lindsay Park as Finance Tycoon, ridden by Luke Nolen, triumphed in the $200,000 Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate. Drawing from Finance Tycoon’s previous race experience under the guidance of trainers Tom Dabernig and Ben Hayes, Nolen took control of the field right from the start. Breaking away towards the middle of the course, he skillfully maneuvered his colt towards the inside rail, leading the charge up the straight. Ingratiating, the favourite at $1.70, closely trailed Finance Tycoon, with jockey Damian Oliver ensuring his colt kept a watchful eye on the leader to the inside. Oliver urged Ingratiating to mount a challenge, but Finance Tycoon displayed great determination and successfully held his ground, crossing the finish line with a half-neck advantage.
  • Lindsay Park co-trainer David Hayes tipped the Maribyrnong Plate result in the correct order but the race did not pan out the way he expected. Hard Landing held off stablemate, filly Baaqyah, to win the Group Three race for two-year-olds on the Flemington straight 1000m course on Thursday. Hayes thought his colt Hard Landing was slightly the better of the two youngsters ahead of their debuts but expected to see Hard Landing stalking the speed instead of leading. The pair staged a two-horse war in the final 100m with Hard Landing ($8.50) prevailing by a half-head from Baaqyah ($21) with Tagaloa ($6) two lengths away third.
