The crowd well and truly cheered home OPEN CHAMPION who battled it out with TREBLE JOY to land the Core Group Maiden Stakes.

Ray Dawson had a flying day OPEN CHAMPION completing the treble on the day to the delight of the crowd at Lingfield. Going one better than last time out at Newmarket in July, the three-year-old son of Postponed put the race to bed in striking fashion defying a challenge from TREBLE JOY to prevail and score for owner Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum. 

OPEN CHAMPION certainly looks a nice type and we hope he continues on this upward trajectory.
