The Tony and Maddysen Sears trained Single Dizire made it back-to-back wins when she followed up her Maiden win with a Class 1 Fillies And Mares Handicap success over 1200m at Ipswich on October 15.
The three-year-old chestnut filly had been progressing well with each start leading into this race.

The stable initially took Single Dizire straight to a midweek meeting in town back on April 17, arguably suggesting that they saw the potential in her, and she did well enough in that debut run, finishing fourth behind Stellar Magic in a QTIS Two-Year-Old Fillies Handicap at Eagle Farm over 1000m

Single Deizire finished fourth again second-up, this time behind the well performed Prince Of Boom in a QTIS Two-Year-Old Maiden Plate at the Sunshine Coast on May 9. (The merit of that run is best put into perspective by the fact that Prince Of Boom won the Group 2 Champagne Classic in his next start) … and then it was on to an eye-catching third place over 1000m, again at Eagle Farm on September 17, in her first run as a three-year-old … a result which put the writing on the wall for the win that was to follow.

That win duly arrived in Single Dizire’s fourth start over 1100m at Ipswich on September 29. Read more here PROGRESSIVE IMPROVEMENT SEES SINGLE DIZIRE CLAIM HER FIRST WIN AT IPSWICH (SEP 29)

Winning a Maiden is one thing. Jumping from Maiden to Class 1 and immediately winning again is a different matter altogether, but Single Dizire never flinched at task. In fact, she won the Class 1 far more fluently than she had done in her Maiden win, this time winning by an impressive 3.80 lengths with jockey Michael Cahill, who had guided her to her Maiden win, once again in the saddle.

The successive wins had both come at Ipswich.

Single Dizire wasn’t missed in the betting. She wasn’t favourite, but she had her followers at a starting price of $2.90 and the decisive winning distance showed that she simply proved far too strong for her market rival Day Performer ($2.35) who, although finishing second, like the rest of the field, was simply no match for the Sears trained runner who took no prisoners when landing an end to end win.
