EXCEPTIONALLY-BRED siblings Make Mine Memphis and Make Mine Heaven will be looking to join their dam as feature winners on Saturday night.
Trained by astute horseman Bernie Hewitt, the duo are engaged in the Young Derby and Cup.
By Rock N Roll Heaven, the pacers are from former champion mare, Make Mine Cullen, which captured four Group Ones among her 40 wins and 15 placings from 80 starts.
Make Mine Memphis will be the first in action when he contests the Derby.
Racing in consistent form, with a win and two seconds from his last four starts, Make Mine Memphis faces a tough task from the middle of the back row.
“Memphis had a freshen up after the New South Wales Derby heats and his work has been great, so I’m very happy with him,” Hewitt said.
“Coming from the back row on a small track isn’t ideal, but he and those drawn there with him are all capable of getting into the race from there.
“It’s a nice even Derby field with no real stand out.”
Winner of her last two outings, Make Mine Heaven has fared better in barrier four.
Despite the mare’s form and starting position, Hewitt believes Make Mine Heaven “will need luck”.
“She’s done well winning her last two given she had been carrying bit of weight,” Hewitt said. “She has trimmed down a bit and is looking a treat.
“It is a hard race but with any sort of luck she will run a bold race. It’s a tough task but one she won’t shirk.”
