Let’s see if the colours of the great Frankel can bring us better luck -- after yet another second yesterday.
Wednesday 24th October
Newmarket 3.05 WIN
Luca Cumani saddles a couple of horses in Kempton maidens tonight, OUT DO (6.20) and GREATWOOD (7.20), who should land their first victories. But in the hope of securing a more attractive SP, the nap selection is Roger Charlton’s progressive two-year-old son of Dansili, who carries the Prince Khalid Abdulla colours of the great Frankel. The rangy colt actually defeated hot favourite Greatwood at Salisbury last time, as well as a highly-regarded Goldolphin runner-up who has since franked the form by running away with a race at Nottingham. This conditions contest represents a step-up in class, for which So Beloved must show more improvement, but he’s a well-related sort who had Group One entries earlier in the season. In contrast, one of his main rivals (Hoarding) looks fully exposed, while the other (Rhamnus) has plenty to prove after a long absence.
