Tea Rose Winner Dame Giselle Firms in 2020 Flight Stakes Betting

A brilliant ride from jockey Tommy Berry has seen the Peter & Paul Snowden trained Dame Giselle claim her third consecutive Group 2 victory in Saturday’s Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick.

The daughter of I Am Invincible proved too strong over the final furlong in what boiled down to an intriguing race in two between Berry’s ride and the Chris Waller trained Hungry Heart.

The three-year-old appeared a little keen coming out of the gate, but Berry did a brilliant job of getting her to settle just off the speed before a big run home.

In a tightly bunched field rounding the final turn, the pair found clear running room down the middle to win by three-quarters of a length.

Hungry Heart, ridden by James McDonald, found herself in tight quarters rounding for home and appeared to cop a slight bump before running on for second.

The Frankel filly began a little slow out of the gates, but should improve greatly in what was just her second run back from a spell.

Dame Giselle, who won the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes and the Furious Stakes first and second-up, was paying $2.70 a win on Saturday as punters backed Hungry Heart into $2.45 favouritism.

“Great ride by Tommy, afforded a good draw and she lobbed into a lovely spot. Just the turn of foot that she possesses when needed to, we were pretty confident that seven furlongs wasn’t going to be a problem today and she has won accordingly,” co-trainer Paul Snowden told the media post-race.

The Snowden team will now set their sights on the Group 1 Darley Flight Stakes over the mile on October 3.

“On the dam side her mum was twice a winner at the mile. Certainly there is a little bit of pedigree there to suggest she is going to run it. She is an on-speed runner and with a similar turn of foot it will take her a long way,” Snowden said of Dame Giselle going up to 1600m.

Fifteen horses have completed the Tea Rose – Flight Stakes double, the last being Alizee back in 2017.

The Snowden’s have only won the Flight Stakes once with Guelph back in 2013 and are now set to saddle one of this year’s main chances with Dame Giselle firming from $6.00 into $4.00 in the all-in Flight Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Despite another runner-up, Hungry Heart remains the favourite in the market with it now perfectly clear that she’s looking for the mile.

The Waller three-year-old can be had at $2.40 after coming in from $2.70.
