Talented filly Catchy has returned to winning form via an impressive performance down the Flemington straight in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) this afternoon.

Catchy jumped a $3.50 favourite in the Danehill Stakes despite drifting and she immediately put herself into the race after jumping well and settling around mid-field, on the outside of the field.

Allowing the filly plenty of time to settle before asking for an extra effort, jockey Regan Bayliss was greeted with a big turn of foot as Catchy ran down Jukebox in the final 100m of the race.

Bayliss secured a running double in partnering Catchy to success in the Danehill Stakes and is confident that she will only improve off the run.

“She was a champion two-year-old, she beat the best fillies and has also beaten Pariah who is obviously a very talented colt,” Bayliss said.

“David has got many more goals ahead and she’s come here today and acquitted herself well. She’s won the Danehill against the boys.

“We jumped well and Summer Passage just darted in and she went down on her knees there for a little bit.

“Then I just stalked Plutocracy and he’d take us for as long as he could until around the furlong and a half and when I peeled off his back, she just stoked up and she did what we all know she can do.”

Trainer David Hayes was thrilled with Catchy’s Danehill Stakes win and revealed that she may take on the boys in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in October.

“She was undefeated in Melbourne as a two-year-old and a Fastnet Rock filly who I just think will train right on,” Hayes said.

“From that gate, we just wanted to give her clear running from the last 600m and trust that she was the strongest horse.

“In that Blue Diamond, she was so powerful in that last 400m and she did that to the boys again today.

“At the moment, she’s probably looking like taking on the boys in the $2 million (Caulfield) Guineas.”

Catchy is currently tied on the second line of Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas betting markets at a generous $8 quote.

    I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
