Peter Savill's 2-year-old filly Dizzy Bizu (Ire) (Caravaggio) posted a May 11 debut score tackling five furlongs at Chantilly and returned over the same strip to remain perfect in Sunday's Listed Prix La Fleche, providing her freshman sire (by Scat Daddy) with a first black-type success. Breaking sharply to race in a prominent second from flagfall, the 21-5 chance came under pressure on all sides passing the quarter-mile marker and was driven out inside the final furlong to assert by an ultimately comfortable 1 3/4 lengths from Anterselva (Fr) (Fast Company {Ire}).

“She wasn't that impressive when winning first time out, but she is a sweet little filly and has improved a lot in her work at home since,” explained trainer Stephane Wattel. “Her dam was a precocious type, who won at Listed level as a 2-year-old, and at this stage she's all speed. I trained for Mr Savill some years ago, without getting the best results, but I think he has forgiven me. He now keeps his mares in France, this is a great result and I'm delighted for him. We will follow the programme and shall target the [G3] Prix du Bois and [G2] Prix Robert Papin. After that, we'll see.”

Dizzy Bizu, who hails from the family of G1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas heroine Platinum Witness (Aus) (California Dane {Aus}), is the lone foal out of Listed Prix Six Perfections victrix Izzy Bizu (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}), herself a half-sister to MGSW G2 Goldene Peitsche winner Donnerschlag (GB) (Bahamian Bounty {GB}) and G3 Round Tower S. placegetter De Boss Man (Ire) (Dandy Man {Ire}). The February-foaled grey's second dam, Listed Prix Occitanie third Dame Hester (Ire) (Diktat {GB}), is kin to G2 King's Stand S. third Funny Valentine (Ire) (Cadeaux Genereux {GB}) and to the dam of G3 Sandown Sprint S.-winning sire Resplendent Glory (Ire) (Namid {GB}). Descendants of her third dam Aunt Hester (Ire) (Caerleon), herself a half-sister to G3 Prix Daphnis-winning sire L'Irresponsable (Ile de Bourbon), include G2 Norfolk S.-sire winning sire Prince of Lir (Ire) (Kodiac {GB}).
