The connections of impressive two-year-old debut winners at Te Rapa and Awapuni on Saturday are eyeing bigger things in the new season.

London Bound made a spectacular start to her career in the Win the Group 2 Waikato Guineas (1200m) at Te Rapa. After sitting in last place early in the race, she cruised up behind the leaders approaching the home turn for jockey Craig Grylls.

London Bound took over effortlessly at the top of the straight and powered clear, winning by seven lengths from the last-start Listed Castletown Stakes (1200m) winner Flaunting.

"We've always had a big opinion of her and she did it really well today," said Clayton Chipperfield, who trains the filly for owner Pharos Thoroughbreds.

"I've told the owners they have a potential Oaks (2400m) filly on their hands next season. She's built like a tank and is bigger than any of my colts. But the way she won today, we might have to look at the 1000 Guineas (Gr.1, 1600m) in November as well. It's pretty exciting.

"In the meantime, there's another race at Te Rapa in two weeks that has a Pearl bonus. If she pulls up really well from this run, there's a chance she might back up there."

London Bound is the fourth individual winner for Rich Hill Stud's first season sire Proisir, the equal most this season alongside Charm Spirit.
