One to Watch – Sandown
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday, 15 March 2017
Carrying the familiar blue and pink colours of well-known owner breeder Keith Biggs to victory at Sandown on Wednesday was the daughter of his Group I AJC Australian Oaks winner Dizelle.

Three year-old Fastnet Rock filly Rock Giselle was cherry ripe at her third run back from a spell when stepped up to 1500 metres.

Fastnet RockThe Lee and Anthony Freedman trained filly surged late to win by three-quarters of a length franking the form of Monday's impressive Moonee Valley winner Montoya's Secret, who thrashed Rock Giselle at her previous start.

Both Rock Giselle and Montoya's Secret are entered for the Group I ATC Australian Oaks on April 8.

A half-sister to stakes-winner Dizlago and Group II placed Lucky Lago, Rock Giselle was retained to race and is the fifth winner from Dizelle, a sister to Hong Kong Horse of the Year Vengeance of Rain and daughter of Group I VATC Blue Diamond Stakes winner Danelagh.

Dizelle produced a full sister to Rock Giselle last spring and was subsequently covered by Written Tycoon.
