Three Weekend Eyecatchers - 27/05/2019

King's Advice Makes It Six From Six

Son of Frankel King's Advice made it six from six with victory at Goodwood on Saturday, and appears to be improving the further he goes up in trip and in grade.

Competing in a 1m6f handicap, the Mark Johnston-trained five-year-old looked well before hand, and just about made it all on the Sussex Downs.

He kept finding extra for Joe Fanning and held on gamely in the final furlong from top handicapper What A Welcome, who was eight from ten in that category beforehand.

King's Advice though remains unbeaten since moving to Johnston's yard back in March. Top performance.

No Luck About Lucky Deal's Victory at Haydock

An inch-perfect ride from Liverpool specialist Franny Norton, guided home Lucky Deal to victory in a Class Two Handicap on Saturday afternoon.

Giving weight to all bar-one of his rivals, it appeared to be a decent day for hold-up horses, as Norton switched off his mount at the back of the field in the marathon contest.

The four-year-old began to make significant headway circling the field after the final bend, and went on to draw away comfortably back on an even surface, after his recent disappointment at Chester.

Arguably the ride of the weekend.

No Stopping Duke Of Firenze

Despite now very much a veteran, Duke Of Firenze showed all the signs he still has what it takes to compete over the minimum trip with a second victory in the space of ten days.

Now a ten-year-old and by far the oldest horse in the field, David Griffiths charge has shown plenty of renaissance of late with a good second at Chester followed by a win for the first time in two years at Thirsk.

The former Epsom Dash winner could be on route to another trip to Surrey this week, and connections will be spirited after a third course and distance success on the Knavesmire.

Proved frustrating, but seems to be back to his brilliant best.
