Part of the enjoyment of racing is trying to spot the next star. There will be a lot of attention on the Sandown card on Friday as one could shine very bright on debut. Chiasma is her name and if her breeding of Galileo and Kind sounds familiar, that’s because the mighty Frankel has exactly the same parents.
The ITV Racing cameras are at Sandown tomorrow as well as Perth, with cards from Doncaster and Cork also part of the afternoon action. We will have horse racing tips from all those meetings as well as the evening action from Worcester, Chepstow and Kilbeggan.
4.10 Sandown – bet365 Fillies’ Novice Stakes
These contests are always tricky from a betting point of view but well worth watching countless times for the potential appearance of future winners. Just six runners go to post here and it will without doubt be Chiasma who garners all the attention given her breeding.
Sporting the same famous colours of Juddmonte as Frankel and representing John and Thady Gosden, she has Frankie Dettori doing the steering. She will of course feature in the thinking of many. The expectations of the racing public will be huge and given her brother, it’s not hard to see why.
Not only did Frankel go through his career unbeaten, he is widely regarded as the greatest flat horse of all time. It’s easy to forget that Noble Mission, another by Galileo out of Kind was a triple Group 1 scorer himself. As such, there is a huge family trend for her to live up to.
Two have previous experience with Nash Nasha winning at Lingfield last August. That means she has a seven-pound penalty to carry which makes her task harder. Haizoom is the other but she showed little on her debut so is probably best watched on her return.
From the other three fellow debutantes, Royal Harmony is the most interesting from an immediate perspective out of a Listed winner. Loving Dash gets a tongue strap on debut which is not a positive but she is a half-sister to the Group 2 winning stayer Dashing Willoughby so she is an interesting one to follow longer term.
