Is it a case of third time lucky for Hungry Heart? Punters think so as she has been backed with confidence to take out the Flight Stakes (1600m) this afternoon at Randwick.
She and Dame Giselle have had a great battle this Spring, with the latter having a 2-0 scoreboard in her favour. But most think Hungry Heart will run the mile out strongly and have made that clear by backing her, into as short as $2.10 from $2.50 and has settled at $2.15.
Dame Giselle opened $2.50 and has eased to $2.70. It will be fascinating to see what the market does the last 10-15 minutes because the previous two runs, it has been Dame Giselle that has been crunched late.
