Allo Allo, a two year old filly by Dissident was able to break her maiden status when stepping up in distance to 1400 metres for the first time at the Gold Coast.

At her previous start over 1350 metres on the 12th June at Doomben, Allo Allo was trapped three wide for the entire race but still looked as though she may figure in the finish in the straight before the wide run took its toll with Allo Allo finishing a creditable fifth.  

After opening at around $4 Allo Allo’s price drifted to a generous $6.50 before they jumped away in the first at the Gold Coast. Jockey Alannah Fancourt could be seen driving Allo Allo out when the barriers opened looking to take up a very forward position from barrier 8.  Having done quite a bit of work in the first 300 metres the pace slowed briefly before Fancourt let Allo Allo roll to take the lead.

Fancourt had Allo Allo travelling a length clear of the field as they passed the 600 before increasing this margin to two lengths passing the 400 metre point. On straightening All Allo still managed to be two lengths clear as she passed the 200 with challengers beginning to emerge from the pack.

With Fancourt riding hard Allo Allo managed to cling on for 0.2 length win from the four challengers who all failed to reel in Allo Allo.  In what was a driving finish under one length separated the first five placegetters.

The 2yo progeny of Dissident appears to be performing better over 1200 meters and up with Dissident having had four winners over 1200m and two over 1400m. Foxborough, a 2yo filly by Dissident has twice finished 2nd over 1600m with one of these being in the Listed King of Sydney Mile at Randwick.

Congratulations to owners, Mr M A McLean, Lucky Sixteen No 3, Mr C J Wessel, Mrs T M Wessel, Mr J W McInally, Mr G G Chapman, Mr P J Daniel, Mr D Rethamel, Mr M Speers, Mr J M Speers, Mr D E Oates, Mr C L O’Connell, Mr D Merola, Mr M K Lindsay, Mr A Burley, Mr D F Bourke, Mrs W L Sullivan, Mr G Sullivan, Mr A Stephenson & Mr A Commins.

On this occasion Allo Allo was strapped by Kane Anderton.
