Frankel 2yo Eye Catchers for 2021

It's been a little while since I last write a post. As you may appreciate the Frankel two-year-olds (2yos) for the 2021 season are in no rush to reveal themselves. However, we do have three talented juveniles to detail which all will be winners although one of those has proven to be a disappointment and odds-on loser. 

Put these in your notebook.

Triple Time, trained by Kevin Ryan.

This son of Frankel out of a three-time winning mare made a taking debut at Leicester [1/6/21]. Racing in the familiar silks of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid Al Maktoum, this March foal faced stiff competition over 6f on good-to-firm ground. A gallant third place looked all the more promising when you watch the race as this bay colt was dramatically slow from the stalls, keen, but ran on in the fashion of a classy horse. There will be lots more to come from this good-looking son of Frankel. Kevin Ryan does well with his two-year-olds and seen a number of winners this season. There was money for Triple Time who was backed from 9/1 - 17/2. The form of that race will hold up and John Gosden's winner Dhabab looks a real talent, while Archie Watson's second placed Sweeping will be winning soon. It's not beyond the realms Triple Time is the best of the lot. I'd be surprised if he doesn't win next time out in a normal maiden and connections could fancy a chance at Royal Ascot.    

Find, trained by John Gosden. 

Another Frankel colt in the capable care of John & Thady Gosden. This April foal is owned by Prince A A Faisal, a home bred from Nawara Stud Limited. This bay colt is out of a very talented mare who four times from nineteen starts, victorious at Grade 1, accruing over £500,000 in total prize earnings.  Find made his debut at Great Yarmouth [28/5/21] over 7f on good ground. This race fielded a number of talented two-year-olds including the comfortable winner New Science trained by Charlie Appleby for Godolphin who proved a classy favourite and clearly a horse that will contend group class racing sooner than later. Find was fancied in the betting [11/2]. Draw in stall one, this good-looking colt, who looked in very good condition, travelled just in behind the pace, hitting the front at the two pole, going as well as anything, and not given a hard time at all in the closing furlong when the favourite went on. I would expect a big run on his second start and another to be contesting pattern class. I'm pretty sure the form of the Yarmouth race will reveal a number of winners. 

Fall Of Rome, trained by Charlie Appleby. 

This bay colt is an April foal in training with Charlie Appleby in the familiar royal blue silks of Godolphin. This son of Frankel is out of a debut-winning mare who also prevailed at Listed class, and contested pattern class on six occasions. 

Fall Of Rome has been something of a punter's nightmare, beaten favourite on his first two starts to date and failing to shine when only finishing third at odds-on [4/11] when the going may have been a touch too soft for this horse. He looked something of an unlucky loser when running from a long way off the pace at Ascot on debut when racing over 5f which may have been on the sharp side. By all accounts it was a disappointing effort at Goodwood but I'm sure a win will be coming within the next few starts. Perhaps a drop back in distance on better ground will be the answer. 

Three promising Frankel 2yo colts who will be winning soon.
