all summer we have been wondering, just wondering, if Frankel is something very very special; yesterday's awesome display at Goodwood went a long way to confirming that. However much of a jumps aficionado I may be I find the purest excitement from horseracing comes from sublime moments of pure speed, just fantastic. And a 10-1 winner from good old Gormless.
Lucy's rides were both non-runners at Perth, the sudden heatwave caused the ground to dry up very quickly, on Tuesday night Scotch Warrior ran well for a long way but tired on the run in and pulled up sore, Pete was a close third. A busy bee she will be this weekend with rides at Musselburgh on Friday, Thirsk on Saturday and Carlisle on Monday, meanwhile back to Gordon.....
