Racing Post analysis:

This looked an above average maiden that will throw up a stack of winners. The first two home left the impression that they are more than entitled to their lofty entries.

FRANKEL is closely related to the stable’s Lingfield Derby winner and is out of a Listed winner. A February foal, the manner in which he travelled up to challenge the eventual second was visually impressive. Barely off the bridle, he only needed to be nudged out by his rider to settle this and will have learnt plenty from the experience. He is in the Royal Lodge Stakes and, with the programme book not full of options for a horse who certainly won’t have been missed by the handicapper, that could be an interesting target.
