It took no time for Frankie Dettori to rediscover his groove in the saddle, winning on his only ride, Galsworthy, at Kempton yesterday. Having said to be feeling like a “kid at Christmas” in an interview prior to the resumption of racing earlier this week, it was a walk in the park to get back to winning ways. Dettori has three rides at Kempton this afternoon, with some strong chances of adding to his tally.
2.10 Sun Bear
Heavy ground won’t have been any help to this filly on her debut but she failed by only a short head at Nottingham in the autumn. Out of an Irish Oaks winner who is a sister to Nathanial, she should be well up to getting off the mark sooner rather than later.
This is a big step up in class from a Chelmsford success but the impression he made that day was a deep one. The runner-up (beaten five lengths) came out and won the next time up to frank the form and in a race that trainer John Gosden has won three times in the last six years, he holds outstanding claims.
A dual winner at this level last season having started off her winning in a Class 4 handicap off 79. Polytrack clearly suits and she has been reported to have been ready for this race in its original date in March. A penalty makes it tougher, especially with a smart stablemate in opposition but she still boasts a solid chance.
