Smart Tiz A Masterpiece three-year-old Exterminate staged a last-to-first performance to register his fourth win at Newcastle on Thursday (March 5).

Starting from the wide No 8 gate, the brown gelding was eased off the mobile arm and settled down a conspicuous last.

Spotting the leaders a tidy start at the 500 metre mark, Exterminate mounted an electrofying finishing burst out five and six deep to claim victory in the last stride.

The time for the flying mile was 2:00.2.

Exterminate is out of the winning Golden Greek mare Nora Barnacle.
