The Tony and Maddysen Sears trained Single Dizire, who had put the writing on the wall with a last start 1.50 length third placing at Eagle Farm, duly followed through with the promise shown there by claiming her first career win as a $3 favourite in a Maiden Handicap over 1100m at Ipswich, at a Metropolitan meeting on September 29.

Single Dizire jumped well and, under the astute guidance of Michael Cahill, the chestnut filly raced in third and then fourth spot, one out and two lengths back, in the first half of the race.

Single Dezire was back up to third, now two wide, on straightening and had moved into an ideal position to challenge at that stage, being less than a length off the lead.

Single Dezire’s run was straight and true in the home straight, but she still had to show the will to win late as the $21 outsider Laraina put up a fight along the inside, but Single Dezire did that to win going away by a comfortable half-length margin with Cahill taking his foot off the accelerator once Single Dizire had gained the upper hand.

It was a good progressive run from the daughter of Not A Single Doubt who only has four starts behind her name.

After winning a trial, Single Dizire went straight to town where she finished fourth behind Stellar Magic, who was winning for the second time on that occasion, over 1000m at Eagle Farm.

That was on a Good 3 track and the Sears camp did not shy away from a heavy track challenge next time out, where Single Dizire produced another fourth placed finish, again over 1000m but this time at the Sunshine Coast.

Significantly, to put that result in proper perspective, the winner of Single Dizire’s race at the Sunshine Coast was Prince of Boom, who would go on to win the Group 2 Champagne Classic at Doomben in his next start. (Also of note, in his two subsequent starts, Prince Of Boom twice finished behind his stable companion Startantes, who will start favourite in this Saturday’s Group 1 Flight Stakes).

Back at Eagle Farm for her third start, Single Dezire finished the closest she had to date with that eye-catching third placing behind the useful looking debut winner Karaoke Queen.

Then it was on to Ipswich, with a victory looking to be within her grasp going into the race, and she grabbed the opportunity with both hands to put that important first win on the board.
