Two big performances from the Harvey Racing representatives at Ascot.
Typical Marchand, he was as tough as ever on speed in the JJ Richards & Sons Handicap on Saturday to place behind Universal Moon.
The pair finished one-and-a-half lengths in front of third.
Aaron Mitchell rode the seven-year old, who gave the winner four kilos, and he is yet to miss a top-three placing this preparation from a trio of runs.
He deserves another win.
Mosstiara showed good toughness after a torrid run and Marchand punched the breeze and boxed on to hold second.
Brad Parnham was posted three-wide without cover at the back of the field early on Mosstiara.
She was forced to make a sustained run and finished just three-and-a-half lengths off the winner Next Generation in the Fifth Leg Handicap over 1200m.
It was an improved effort on her disappointing run last time out in late February.
