An Epsom Icon
Lester Piggot, Kieran Fallon, No Charlie Bishop in this case as the aptly named Epsom Icon took the two year old maiden in the style of a horse with a future.
Shadow Game had taken them along after breaking smartly but from some way out it was inevitable that he was going to be passed by the strongly travelling winner. When asked to go and win the race he pricked his ears through inexperience but was well on top at the end from the fast finishing Phanthom Flipper.
Elsewhere on the card Jupiter Custos got off the mark in the claiming race that opened the card and he was claimed by David Bridgwater before Ninety Minutes scored in the Mile and a half handicap following the withdrawl of Arantes at the post.
