Flamberge has held on to beat Fell Swoop in a photo-finish to the Group One Oakleigh Plate.
Having his third start in Caulfield’s premier sprint, Flamberge ($31) raced wide from a deep barrier with the 58kg topweight.
And while the Peter Moody-trained sprinter raced on tired legs from the 100m, he still had enough in hand to get the result from gallant Canberra galloper Fell Swoop ($14).
“We always try and have him ready for these handicaps because he’s not a weight-for-age horse,” Moody said.
The $3.70 favourite Heatherly held down the minor placing after sharing the lead from the jump.
