Red Hot Nicc amplified his career best form under the Friday Night Lights of Moonee Valley registering his second win on the bounce.
After a series of narrow misses in the middle part of last year, the Phillip Stokes-trained gelding has discovered the way to win in 2023, backing up his 1100m Flemington victory in January with a 1200m success at The Valley.
Under the guidance of Zac Spain, the son of Nicconi out of Glorious Red, pinged the gates beautifully from the inside draw and immediately took up the running leaving his rivals chasing hard from the outset.
By the turn into the home straight, he’d broken the hearts and bolted away to a dominant three and a half length romp.
Red Hot Nicc will now head to higher grades provide far too accomplished now for benchmark 70 level.
