2016 Stocks Stakes Return for Single Gaze

Nick Olive’s Cox Plate-bound filly Single Gaze will make her race return in September’s Stocks Stakes 2016 as she progresses towards Australasia’s weight-for-age championship this spring.

The rising four-year-old daughter of Not A Single Doubt was in flying form during the autumn including most notably her win in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill in late March.

Things went amiss next run however during ‘The Championships’ at Randwick in April when Single Gaze and jockey Kathy O’Hara fell during the running of the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m).

While O’Hara was sidelined with her injuries for two months, incredibly the Canberra-based filly came through the mishap without any lasting damage and she is right on track for a spring bid in Melbourne this season.

“Single Gaze didn’t suffer any injuries as such, but she had a lot of deep bruising which took a while to come right,” Olive told AAP this week.

“She’s 100 per cent now.”

She galloped well on Tuesday morning at home in Canberra and Olive confirmed a trial for her at the end of August before a likely first-up run in the $200,000 Group 2 W.H. Stocks Stakes (1600m) over the mile at Moonee Valley Racecourse on September 30, which will be Single Gaze’s first run as a mare and first Victorian run.

“We’ll take it from there with how well she’s coming along, but she’ll be nominated for all the good races,” Olive said.

All going well Olive and connections have plans for Single Gaze to target this year’s $3 million Group 1 W.S. Cox Plate (2040m) back at Moonee Valley on October 22.

Olive is yet to saddle-up a Cox Plate runner, but four-year-olds have dominated the race in recent years winning five of the past six editions of the classic.

Among those were two four-year-old mares with Pinker Pinker (2011) and the history-making Winx (2015) last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

The Chris Waller-trained daughter of Street Cry is favourite again in early Cox Plate betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, Winx at $2.80 to join So You Think (2009-10) as the most recent dual champion.
