Frankel Watch: Dubai Beauty Ready for Saeed bin Suroor

So we are still waiting for a top-class Frankel 2yo to hit the track this season. 

Dubai Beauty is a bay filly and daughter of Frankel out of a mare named Minidress who was trained by disgraced Mahmood Al Zarooni. She raced just four times in her career: twice at two and a couple of outings at three. She won easily by four lengths when making her debut over 7f at Newmarket. Then ran a very respectable race when fourth, beaten two lengths, in the Sahkee Oh So Sharp Stakes (Group 3) at Newmarket. Returning at three, she contested the Lanwades Stud Nell Gwyn Stakes (Group 3) (Fillies) where she finished 9th, beaten just over five lengths. Dropping back down to Listed class in her final racecourse appearance when stepping up to 1m 2f at Goodwood losing by a neck. 

Dubai Beauty is a home bred for Godolphin. She has received a number of entries for this week and looks likely to be hitting the track. 

3 Racecourse entries:

Thursday   7f Newbury
Thursday   7f Ascot
Friday     7f Thirsk

Other Frankel two-year-olds to run this week may include:

1:50 Sandown (Thursday, 26th) 

Cap Francais trained by Ed Walker in the ownership of John Pearce Racing Ltd. This home bred is out of the mare Miss Cap Ferrat (18 year old mare) who was trained by Geoff Wragg. She raced twice, showing limited ability. 

6:40 Newmarket (Friday, 27th) 

Dombra trained by Hugo Palmer. Raced three times, going close on his second start but somewhat disappointing last time out.
