The Grahame Begg-trained Dosh relegated odds-on favourite Frost Flowers to third when she led throughout to claim the fillies’ edition of the Preview.
The youngster won the Ottawa Stakes at Flemington on debut in the spring but almost threw the race away with her wayward manners.
There was no sign of that at Caulfield where Dosh ($5.50) kicked strongly when challenged to deny Tayla’s Moment ($12) and Frost Flowers ($1.65 fav) with debutante Duchy Of Savoy an eye-catching fourth.
Begg combined with Dosh’s jockey Jordan Childs to win the Blue Diamond Stakes with Written By three years ago and Dosh will get the opportunity to join him on the race’s honour roll.
“She is very exciting,” Begg said.
“To be able to come to the races, (win) two out of two and she gave two kilos away because she paid the penalty for winning a Group Three at her first start, which is not easy to do.”
Begg expected Dosh to take significant improvement from her first-up run and said she would be given a trial or jump out before going straight into the Blue Diamond Stakes without another start.
Dosh is on the third line of TAB Fixed odds markets for the juvenile showpiece at $11 with boom filly Enthaar a $3.50 top pick.
