Frankie’s Thoughts

I’VE got some decent rides this afternoon, none more so than Lyric Of Light in the Fillies’ Mile. She’s a lovely filly and I was very impressed with her at Doncaster. She showed some signs of greenness that day, but there should be a bit more improvement and I hope she can confirm the form with Fallen For You.

Poet’s Voice is a very good horse on his day and we gave him some time off after Dubai this winter. He was carrying a bit of extra weight at Goodwood last time and just got tired close home. That run will have done him the world of good, we have a pacemaker in the race and if he comes back to form, he should be thereabouts.

I ride Rakasa in the first, who was just touched off in a four-way photo at Goodwood last time, but that was a messy race. She’s very honest, has Group form in the book and should finish in the first two or three.

Ragsah is a nice filly who runs in the Listed race, but she’s got it all to do if I’m honest. She’s quite small and it would be great if we could get some black type.

Man Of Action is my mount in tomorrow’s Cambridgeshire and he won well last time at Donny. He should run okay, but I’m not particularly pleased with his draw in stall 14. I’m not sure if far side or stand side is the place to be, but you don’t really want to be up the middle.
