Lord Campari takes big step forward to record stylish victory at Newbury

Sat 13 Jun 2020

Lord Campari redeemed himself with trainer Roger Varian after running out a stylish winner in the first division of the It’s Not Rocket Science With MansionBet Novice Stakes at Newbury.

Having stood on the Newmarket handler’s foot during the preliminaries, the son of Kingman, who finished sixth on his debut at Sandown last year, more than made up for it on his seasonal comeback in the mile contest.

Travelling powerfully throughout, the 15-8 shot quickly put the race to bed when sent on, crossing the line four and three-quarter lengths clear of favourite Tsar.

Varian said: “He jumped on my foot when I was saddling him, so he has redeemed himself well. The win has made me feel better.

“We liked him last year but he is a big, raw horse. He travelled nicely and quickened well. It was a nice seasonal debut. We will see how he is in the morning then take it from there.”
