Casanova has that win­ning look for Gos­den sta­ble

The Racing Paper - - Tv Races And News - Dave Young­man’s New­mar­ket let­ter

TO­DAY I will be at Don­caster to see the cur­tain come down on what has been a fab­u­lous turf Flat rac­ing sea­son, and I can't wait for the new sea­son to start again at the end of next March. What a sea­son it prom­ises to be with so much tal­ent here in our New­mar­ket yards.

CHAR­LIE Ap­pleby and Godol­phin have en­joyed a won­der­ful year in­clud­ing win­ning the Ep­som Derby with MASAR and more re­cently CROSS COUNTER triumphant in the Mel­bourne Cup, plus LINE OF DUTY win­ning at the Breed­ers’ Cup meet­ing.

IT is al­ways a plea­sure talk­ing to Char­lie on the gallops and at the Godol­phin sta­bles. He is al­ways very po­lite and has a quiet and re­served per­son­al­ity. He has pro­gressed from be­ing trav­el­ling head lad to be­ing lead­ing trainer for Godol­phin, with many as yet un­raced ju­ve­niles in his string show­ing so much prom­ise in their work his suc­cess look cer­tain to con­tinue.

OUR Limekilns gallops were still in use this week here at HQ, which is most un­usual for Novem­ber. Some train­ers took ad­van­tage and made use of them in­clud­ing John Gos­den.

He put un­raced CASANOVA through his paces over there. This son of Frankel is out of Karen’s Caper.

As he was not born un­til April 28, 2016, he is a late foal so has been given plenty of time but there is no mis­tak­ing his vast abil­ity judged by what I have seen of him in his work on the gallops. He will be out be­fore long on the all weather track.

SIR Michael Stoute also used the Limekilns this week to work MI­RAGE DANCER.

This son of Frankel will be off to race in Hong Kong next month and he is still im­prov­ing and look­ing par­tic­u­larly well for the time of year. He stretched out in im­pres­sive fash­ion this week in his breeze.
