Rigg Quinella As Fuddle Dee Duddle Scores Boilover

Original article by Perth Racing | Taken from Perth Racing Tips


Leading owner Eddie Rigg claimed an unexpected quinella as Fuddle Dee Duddle defeated Bippo No Bungus in the Skyy Vodka Champion Fillies Stakes at Ascot on Saturday.


Trained by Lindsey Smith, Fuddle Dee Duddle ($12.50) got under the radar of punters somewhat, given the velocity he has attacked the line with in the Burgess Queen Stakes last start.


Ridden by Champion rider Paul Harvey, the Red Ransom filly came from near last to notch a fourth career victory and first stakes success.


She has now earned in excess of $300,000 and is likely to race next in the WFA Kingston Town Classic.


Rigg was overcome with emotion post-race, the result made even sweeter with a winning trifecta ticket.


“It’s just sensational, Lindsey and all the team have done a great job,” Rigg said.


Rigg stated Fuddle Dee Duddle had been aimed at this race for over a year while runner-up Bippo No Bungus choked down in the Burgess Queen.


This was Harvey’s third success in the race following Spirit Lady in 2003 and the ill-fated Eight Til Late last year.


Bippo No Bungus ($95.20) ran a super race for second while even-money favourite Antique Belle ($2.00) had no luck when finishing third.


Starting from barrier three, rider William Pike was unable to find clear running until the final 100m in the home straight.


Numbers: 4 13 7 2 10 Time: 01:36:09 (600m: 35:90) Margins: ¾ L x ¼ L x ¼ L

Dividends: Win: $12.50 Place: $2.60 $14.90 $1.30
