Youth overcame experience at Waverley where Embellish’s son Phats posted the first winning strike of his career.

The Chrissy Bambry-trained three-year-old had put the writing on the wall when a solid third at Wanganui at his previous outing and he showed pleasing improvement to put away his highweight rivals with ease.

Rider Shaun Fannin tucked him behind the pace on the fence and overcame a bump in the home straight to streak clear under 68.5kg to score by six and a-half lengths at the end of 1650 metres.

Phats was bred by Tony Bambry, who races the gelding with his family, and Luca and Simon Luoni and is the fourth winner for the City On A Hill mare Blueberry Hill.

She is a half-sister to the Listed Wanganui Guineas winners Alcaldesa and Lord Turbo, who also won four times in Hong Kong as Little Dragon.
