Further successes await Oceanic Flash if the ease of his breakthrough success at Newcastle on Saturday afternoon is any guide.

The Gerald Ryan and Sterling Alexiou-trained son of Sacred Falls was sent out a commanding favourite and his army of supporters never had any concerns.

From the outside stall, rider Mitchell Bell settled him fifth on the outer before peeling three-wide to improve 500 metres from home.

The lightly raced 4-year-old held a sustained run to leave the rest of the field in his wake and coasted home by 3.75l.

Oceanic Flash was sold at Karaka by Waikato Stud for $140,000 and is a half-brother to the G2 Wellington Guineas winner President Lincoln.

They are out of the Pentire mare Pinot Gris, who is a daughter of the prolific winner Covered N’ Grey. She won on 24 occasions, including success in the G2 Travis S.
