Frodon tops weights for In­ter­na­tional test

Gloucestershire Echo - - RACING -

» FRODON heads the weights on 11st 12lb for the £130,000 G3 Caspian Caviar Gold Cup on day two of The In­ter­na­tional at Chel­tenham on De­cem­ber 15.

Paul Ni­cholls’ horse, who landed this race as a four-year-old in 2016, ran a gal­lant race un­der top-weight when go­ing down by two lengths to Baron Alco in the G3 Betvic­tor Gold Cup at The Novem­ber Meet­ing.

Baron Alco could be­come the fourth horse to win both the Betvic­tor Gold Cup and Caspian Caviar Gold Cup in the same sea­son, after Peg­well Bay (1988), Senor El Betrutti (1997) and Ex­otic Dancer (2006).

Gui­tar Pete (Nicky Richards, 9st 13lb) and Frodon have the chance to em­u­late Po­quelin, who is the only mul­ti­ple win­ner of the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup thanks to back-to-back vic­to­ries in 2009 and 2010.
