Frankely a Good Day!
The legendary Frankel added to his world-wide successes with a win in Australia when the three-year-old Merovee, trained by Chris Waller, claimed the X X X X Gold Mdn Plate yesterday. That was just the start of a good day for the unbeaten champion because back in Europe his son Eminent, after three well-run but unplaced efforts in top races, repeated his top-winning form with an all-the-way victory in the Group 2 Prix Guillaume d'Ornano at Deauville. The Martyn Meade-trained colt only made sixth in the 2,000 Guineas, fourth in the Derby and fifth in the Coral-Eclipse but on this occasion, with Ryan Moore aboard for the first time, he left nothing to chance and won from the front ahead of Sylvester Kirk's Salouen. Another Frankel colt, Last Kingdom, hung on for fourth position.
Step in Time
Another Galileo son is to follow up his disappointing performance at Royal Ascot by taking on the ten-furlong Juddmonte International at York next week. Trainer Aidan O'Brien had to withdraw his dual 2,000 Guineas runner from the Sussex Stakes because of soft ground but and he now feels this is the right moment step up Churchill to a mile and a quarter.
Second Time of Asking
Trainer Kevin Ryan is sending two of his young fillies for birthday celebrations at Beverley on Thursday. Both Elnadim Star and Gold Stone made their racecourse debut in July with Gold Stone making runner-up at this popular East Yorkshire track circuit and Elnadim Star soundly defeated. Today they have another chance for success when they run in two divisions of the five-furlong Nigel's 60th Birthday EBF Fillies' Novice Stakes.
