Fell Swoop Wins Listed Cup Club Stakes

Monday, 7th September 2015

At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice-Single's Bar, by Rory's Jester) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Fell Swoop (Not a Single Doubt-Touched in Flight, by Fasliyev) scored by 1.5-lengths for trainer Matthew Dale in the $120,000 Listed Cup Club Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over 6YO mare Beach Front (Strategic-Cos Snip, by Snippets) & 5YO mare Griante (Good Journey-Grand Strategy, by Strategic). This was the first stakes victory for the highly progressive Fell Swoop who boosted his impressive strike rate to 7 wins and 1 placing from 9 starts for $275,670 earnings. Dale has no firm plans for Fell Swoop in the spring, but said his long-term target is the Gr1 Oakleigh Plate in the autumn. "I'll get a bit of feedback from Damien [jockey Damien Oliver], I'll weigh it up overnight, I'll watch the replay a few times before I lock in anything," he said. "I've thought all along that I wanted to have him here early spring and not give him a deep spring. I think he'll be better in the autumn and we might set him for a race like that Oakleigh Plate."
