Majoris was slowly away first time and was slowly away again today. He's a nice well-balanced horse and it was a nice performance as I had to bring him wide. He keeps up the Frankel record

Majoris wins on second time of asking

Majoris got off the ground at the second time of asking, with a cosy victory in a maiden at Brighton on 5th July for trainer Hugo Palmer and owner/breeders Al Asayl Bloodstock.

The colt (pictured on the gallops at Newmarket) was sixth on debut over six furlongs on 27th May, where he ran very greenly, but the step up in trip this time seemed to suit him.

"Majoris was slowly away first time and was slowly away again today. He's a nice well-balanced horse and it was a nice performance as I had to bring him wide. He keeps up the Frankel record," said jockey Jim Crowley.

All of Frankel's runners in Europe have now won. The only horse to run outside Europe, Rise Eagle, finished fifth on debut in Japan on 2nd July.
