At Caulfield in Melbourne, Darley's former Champion Australian Sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a Gr1 success when 6YO gelding Flamberge (Exceed and Excel-Razor Blade, by Blazing Sword) scored by a short-head for trainer Peter Moody in the in the $500,000 Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m), over 4YO gelding Fell Swoop (Not A Single Doubt-Touched In Flight, by Fasliyev) & 3YO filly Heatherly (Lonhro-Dancing Heather, by Danzero).
