From Frankie to Fontwell

Frankie may have won two Derbys in two days, but the first at Fontwell this evening looks an intriguing race. Norman Beckett catches the eye, having finished a close second to Mon Michel (in which Betfair owner Andrew Black has a part share) over the course and distance last time. NB has done most of his racing on ground with some cut so today's conditions are something of an unknown; however the Racing Post form describes him as 'a certain future winner'. Another I expect to progress from last time is Henrietta Knight's Shekel who could go well as a price.

Norman Beckett, sent off the 5/2 favourite, may well be a 'certain future winner' but he had to play second fiddle on this occasion to 9/1 shot Enthusius. I expected better from 20/1 shot Shekel who finished a tailed off sixth; the market got this one right, pricing him up at 20/1. He looks one to avoid at present.
