The only time the royally-bred Deep Impact (JPN) filly Glint Of Hope (JPN) missed a place came in the VRC Oaks last spring. That was a distant memory when a Daniel Moor special paved the way for a maiden stakes win in Saturday’s $502,000 Group 1 Grand Syndications Australasian Oaks (2000m) at Morphettville.
From an inside barrier, Moor never went around a horse on the Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained filly.
The daughter of Deep Impact (IRE) kept up a relentless gallop to defeat the admirably brave Rebel Raider filly Barb Raider by a head, with the favoured Frankel filly My Wisper a further long-head back in third.

“She can be a bit temperamental at home. She has her moments and is sometimes is a little hard to catch
“It is fantastic to Mr Hosaka and her Japanese connections who entrusted us after Tagaloa, another Japanese bred Group 1 winner.
Consigned by Bhima Thoroughbreds to the 2020 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale, Glint Of Hope (JPN) was purchased by Asrun for $250,000.
