Bryony Frost is a jockey that hails from a big racing family. She is the daughter of Jimmy Frost, who himself was a jockey. He won the 1989 Grand National aboard Little Polveir.
Frost is no stranger to big race wins. She won the Foxhunter Chase at the 2017 Cheltenham Festival aboard Pacha Du Polder for trainer Paul Nicholls.
Setting new records all the time, in 2019 Frost became the first woman to win a Grade One over obstacles at the Cheltenham Festival. That was aboard Frodon in the Ryanair Chase.
She rode the same horse to victory in the 2020 King George VI Chase at Kempton Park, leading her rivals a merry dance from the front. Again she set a new record becoming the first woman jockey to win the race.
This lady is never to be doubted and she is top class in the saddle. She has two potentially interesting Grade One rides at this years Cheltenham Festival. The double currently returns a huge 866-1 with bet365.
Lil Rockerfeller (50-1) Stayers’ Hurdle
Bryony will more than likely ride this boy in the Stayers’ Hurdle. He was runner-up in the race behind Nichols Canyon in 2017 and showed signs that his ability still remains intact in recent starts.
He hit lows of 1.15 and 1.17 in-running on the exchanges when runner-up at Newton Abbot and Market Rasen. If he gets a soft lead at Cheltenham, he will be a tough horse to peg back.
Frodon (16-1) Gold Cup
If you asked me a year ago if Frodon could win a Gold Cup, I would have laughed at you. But do you know what? He has a chance this year. Not a big chance but if he is on a going day, he has a squeak.
Bryony gave him a peach of a ride when winning the King George at Kempton on Boxing Day. He was 4th in the Ryanair last year, a race he won the year prior. The big question is whether or not he can last home in a Gold Cup but he’s in with a shout.
