The only jockey with a winning record on Stay With Me reunites with the filly in the A$500,000 Vinery Stud Stakes.

Dwayne Dunn will be aboard at Rosehill today when Stay With Me tries to add the Vinery (2000m) to her group one win in the Thousand Guineas.

Stay With Me is a daughter of 2006 Golden Slipper winner Miss Finland who won both races as well as the VRC Oaks and Australian Guineas during her three-year-old season.

David Hayes trained Miss Finland and now prepares her daughter in partnership with Tom Dabernig.

Dunn has ridden Stay With Me four times for three wins.

Betting markets have Stay With Me the second-string Lindsay Park runner with Australian Guineas placegetter Risque the more fancied.

Jameka ($3.60) just shades Risque ($3.80) for top billing in the group one race with Stay With Me on the fourth line at $9.50.

Dabernig said it was wise to be a little wary when travelling interstate with fillies but added Risque had settled in well since travelling from Melbourne to Sydney.

"She doesn't have to improve a hell of a lot to be right in it."
