Frankness Flies Home At Chester (20th August)

As if Frankel's offspring hadn't shone brightly enough with Chaldean winning the Acomb Stakes (Group 3) at York, team Balding proved a star turn at Chester with another smashing prospect this time a chestnut filly called Frankness. 

This daughter of Frankel out of a two-times-winning mare, Cosmopolitan Queen, who was trained by David Elwsorth and in the same silks of owner John Smith. 

Frankness ran well on debut when fancied at Newmarket, finishing third in a tight finish, losing by three-quarters of a length. Then ran a sterling race second start at Chester over 7f when beating Endeared who is a capable colt. 

Under a win penalty Frankness returned to her happy hunting ground over course and distance taking the British Stallion Stud EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes (GBB Race) (Irish Incentive Race) by an impressive six-and-a-half lengths, being eased the last 110 yards under a great front-running ride from 3lb apprentice Harry Davies.

You'd imagine after these two victories this February foal will be heading towards pattern class. 

Good luck to connections.
