Jeremy Noseda has always been more about quality rather than quantity and, though he’s only had 10 winners so far this season, they have come at a strike-rate of 19%.
However, though times are leaner than they have been in the glory days of the likes of Sixties Icon and Laddies Poker Two – he thinks he’s managed to amass the best bunch of two-year-olds he’s has for many a season. He’s also been nominating some targets for his better older horses.
Lots of money arrived for this one before his run in the Royal Hunt Cup, and he was backed in from 25/1 ante-post to 13/2 favouritism. The trainer said the money wasn’t anything to do with connections though, as he felt his charge needed the run after a year off. He hopes he’ll be much sharper for his next target – a 7-furlong handicap on King George Day at the end of July.
Brought along slowly and, having won at Kempton in October, he ran perfectly respectably at Sandown earlier this month. 10-furlongs is thought to be his trip, and looks sure to be found a winning opportunity or two over the next couple of months.
If her breeding is anything to go by, she could be very smart being by Frankel out of Finsceal Beo, and it will be a major surprise if she isn’t winning soon. Noseda was brimming with confidence when he said he thought she had a bright future.
Sired by one of the stable’s best horses in Sixties Icon, and this three-time winner is thought to have a big prize in him off his current handicap mark. Things didn’t quite go his way at Royal Ascot, and the Magnet Cup at York may be his next race.
Unraced filly by Frankel out of one of the stable’s favourite dams, and a good future is expected for her.
Unraced War Front sired filly who is showing up well at home, and will probably relish fast ground.
Impressed on debut over 7-fulongs at Doncaster, and likely to be kept to that distance for her next race at Newmarket. Likely to be stepped-up to a mile after that, and her trainer thinks the sky is the limit for her.

Not won either of her starts yet, but she did come first in the stand-side at Royal Ascot in the Albany Stakes. That looked an above average renewal of that race, and her trainer will be disappointed if she doesn’t win a Group Race this season.
