Shanghai Glory wins at the Curragh
Shanghai Glory benefited from a drop back to six furlongs to take the Listed honours in the Elmer Hannon Travel Waterford Testimonial Stakes at the Curragh.
Beaten over seven furlongs in his last two starts, Charlie Hills' three-year-old showed he still has the toe for the shorter trip.
Shanghai Glory (14-1) had the race won after seeing off early leader Nameitwhatyoulike and G Force, the 100-30 favourite, to take a clear lead over a furlong out.
However, William Buick had to keep him up to his work to score by a length from the fast-finishing Master Speaker and Bebhinn, who was a head away in third.
Buick said: "He likes that ground. He was always travelling well and picked up good. He probably won a bit cosy in the end."
