Talking Horses: Bank on King Frankel to lift London Gold CupSaturday 15 May 2021
The selection’s winning time at Pontefract was strong and odds of around 10-1 could prove to be very generous
The Lockinge Stakes is the Group One feature of the Newbury card but the London Gold Cup is the race most punters will want to crack and King Frankel (3.00) – a son of the brilliant Lockinge winner in 2012 – could be the answer.
Mark Johnston’s colt must have set a real puzzle for the handicapper, having won a three-runner maiden by a remarkable 32 lengths at Pontefract on 28 April. Despite the small field, though, his winning time was strong and suggests that an opening mark of 82 – and odds of around 10-1 could prove to be very generous.
