Frankel Watch: 2YO Racing Week

Tom Dascombe trains Frankadore
A little slow to detail this post.

Thursday:

Thursday - 2:20 Cap Francais (GB) 2yo — Miss Cap Ferrat (GB) (Overnight) at Salisbury Gift Of Sight Appeal EBF Novice Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Div I) (1m)

Ed Walker's son of Frankel ran well on debut when finishing second at odds of 9/2. Should hold serious claims.

Thursday - 2:50 Fox Premier (IRE) 2yo — Fann (USA) (Overnight) at Salisbury Gift Of Sight Appeal EBF Novice Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Div II) (1m)

Andrew Balding bay colt has been fancied on all three starts to date and gradually getting his act together. A respectable second place at Goodwood when a beaten favourite. The step up to one mile seems to have helped.

Thursday - 3:10 Frankadore (IRE) 2yo — Adoration (USA) (Overnight) at Haydock 32Red.com EBF Novice Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (1m)

We've mentioned Tom Dascombe's Frankadore a number of times but he's been withdrawn. It looks like this cheap purchase (for a Frankel) will be making his debut at Haydock, a track the stable do very well. It's a stiff race so he will need to be highly rated to take this at the first time of asking. 

Friday:

Friday, 07 September 2018 - 2:05 Fox Vardy (USA) 2yo — Dance With Another (IRE) (Overnight) at Ascot Charbonnel Et Walker British EBF Maiden Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (Sire And Dam Restricted Race) (7f)

Another Frankel offspring we've mentioned. Martyn Meade trains this bay colt who is in the ownership of King Power Racing Co Ltd. 210,000 guineas purchase at the yearling sales. This January foal holds an Epsom Derby entry. Also, holds an entry at Ascot, Saturday.  


Saturday: 

Saturday, 08 September 2018 - 2:10 Chartered (GB) 2yo — Time Saved (GB) (Four day) at Ascot Royal Foresters British EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes (Plus 10 Race) (1m)

This homebred daughter of Frankel is entered to make her debut at Ascot for Ralph Beckett. 

Saturday, 08 September 2018 - 2:40 Fume (IRE) 2yo — Puff (IRE) (Four day) at Kempton (AW) 188Bet Mobile Bet10 Get20 Nursery Handicap (Jockey Club Grassroots Nursery Qualifier) (7f)

Trained by Ralph Beckett and going for a nursery with a rating of 70.
