The only group 1 winner in the field was in front with a lap to go and never looked in any real danger, although he did have only a half length to spare on the line.

Gallant bitch Lemon Sunrise, trained at Dilston by Pat Ryan, closed quickly to finish second, with Locknane Eve more than seven lengths away in third place.

Fantastic Spiral is trained at Appin by Jason Fletcher who sent the dog to Mangalore trainer Mick Stringer three weeks ago to be prepared for the Launceston Cup series.

Fantastic Spiral won both his heat and semi-final in fast times and started $2.20 favourite for the final.

Stringer said that the dog would be on a plane to Melbourne on Tuesday afternoon and would run in the invitation-only Temlee, worth $100,000 to the winner, at The Meadows on Saturday night.

‘‘He’s drawn box 2 in the Temlee and should be hard to beat,’’ Stringer said.

‘‘He’s a lovely dog with a good temperament and he’s already shown that he can win at group 1 level.’’

Stringer, who won the Launceston Cup himself with Painted Hilux in 1991, has had a 10-year association with Jason Fletcher.

‘‘The first dog he ever sent me won 13 of its first 14 starts and we haven’t looked back,’’ the trainer said.

‘‘I’m very happy to have now helped him win a Launceston Cup.

‘‘There’s a bit of pressure on when you’re looking after the favourite for a big race,’’ he said.
