First up was the promising 2yo son of One World, Lion Rampart, who banked his second win from 5 starts when bolting home in the half cups for trainer Vaughan Marshall.

Raced by the Hollywood Syndicate, the smashing colt is out of the Var mare Saltire and is rated by veteran trainer Vaughan Marshall.

“Once he learns how to race, he could be something special. I expect him to enjoy further and he looks to have a bright future,” added the Milnerton master.

The Ridgemont team popped the champagne after the last race when the Candice Bass-Robinson trained Canford Cliffs daughter Strata, who races for an illustrious partnership, beat a mixed sex field as she flew up late to collar the free-striding Palo Queen to register he second win in 15 starts. She is out of the classy Var mare, Valdivia.
