James Cummings delivered his first group 1s this season for one of Australia’s most influential breeders – and the fire still burns for another before High Midnight’s tilt at the Queensland Derby on Saturday.

Cummings, who trains in partnership with his Hall Of Fame grandfather Bart, has his own group 1 tally idling at two after the Golden Rose-Randwick Guineas success this season of Hallowed Crown, bred by his wife Monica’s grandfather Eduardo Cojuangco’s Gooree Park.
