Hungry Heart has finished as the bridesmaid for the third successive time this preparation when clearly outstayed by Montefilia in the 2020 Group 1 Flight Stakes at Randwick.
In what was expected to be a match-race between arch rivals Dame Giselle and Hungry Heart it was the David Payne-trained Montefilia who spoiled the party.
Dame Giselle trailed the leader Vangelic in the run and she was held up for a good while as Hungry Heart stormed down the outside to look the winner but that filly just couldn’t hold off the powerful finish of Montefilia.
With Hungry Heart a brave second it was Vangelic who hung on for third with Dame Giselle not looking likely when she did have clear running and the 1600m appeared a bit beyond her.
Montefilia has finished powerfully over the top of strong favourite Hungry Heart to claim the Group 1 Flight Stakes for @HugeBowman and @DPayneRacing in nice fashion 👏pic.twitter.com/TJPt05JqA0
