Frankel Watch: Seventh Kingdom Wins Readily on Debut at Doncaster

You don't have to wait long to be impressed by a Frankel-sired two-year-old.

That's what favourite backers concluded as they saw the John Gosden-trained Seventh Kingdom win on debut at Doncaster. 

This son of Frankel out of the winning mare Nayarra started his career in a four-runner race but there was lots of enjoy about his performance when winning by and easy four-lengths at odds of 6/5f. 

This April foal in the familiar silks of owner Prince A A Faisal took a little while to gather pace as Longlai and Codebook set the pace but it was all changed at the two-furlong pole as Seventh Kingdom cruised past the opponents, pulling clear in the final half-furlong to make a beautiful introduction with hopes of more to come. 

Thady Gosden, representing John Gosden said: He was a bit green and behind the bridle but picked up nicely and galloped to the line. 

There will be more to come from this attractive colt.
