It’llbefantastic Wins Hilton Stakes

On the final day of the illustrious Flemington Spring Carnival, Emirates Stakes Day was host to a range of fantastic races including the Listed $151 000 Hilton Stakes where the Dean Howard-trained It’llbefantastic scored an upset victory.

Ridden by Glen Boss, the lightly raced outsider at $31 defeated Silver Spur ($4.80) and the odds-on favourite Governance ($2.20) in the 1400m Flemington race on Saturday, upstaging two of Australia’s biggest stables Arrowfield and Darley Stud. It was a gallant finish for the Peter Snowden-trained Governance who was held up badly at the top of the straight before weaving a passage through the field on the extreme outside

After the biggest win of his career, Cranbourne trainer Howard is now considering It’llbefantastic, the son of Fantastic Light, for the Sandown Guineas (1600m) next Saturday. The promising three-year-old should have no problem stepping up to the 1600m as his Hilton Stakes victory came off a strong maiden win at Pakenham over 1314m.
