Master Fibba held on for a narrow victory over Slice and Dice in the last race of the day at Eagle Farm on Wednesday.
With apprentice Brooke Richardson aboard, Master Fibba jumped to the lead in the Benchmark 75 1200m Handicap. In the straight a battle arose, with race favourite Slice and Dice closing the gap and seemingly wearing down Master Fibba. Fighting back gamely on a heavy track, Master Fibba held on for a 0.1L victory over Slice and Dice. Supreme Affair was not far away 0.5L third.
It was the 20th race start for the son of Danzero/Noble Lie.
