Gos­den gives us sight of Frankel son Casanover

The Racing Paper - - Tv Races And News - Dave Youg­man with his weekly re­port from New­mar­ket

IT HAS been a busy time for Godol­phin train­ers this week in New­mar­ket as they pre­pare to fly some horses to Dubai to win­ter there in the warmth.

MASAR is due to go shortly, not to race just to con­tinue his re­cu­per­at­ing there. He is pro­gress­ing nicely and trainer Char­lie Ap­pleby told me he is look­ing for­ward to hav­ing him back in train­ing next sea­son, where he hope­fully will be rac­ing against EN­ABLE.

THE horses fly to Dubai by Emi­rates Sky Cargo Boe­ing 777 air­craft, grooms and vets care and at­tend to their ev­ery need dur­ing the flight from Stansted.

Godol­phin trainer Ap­pleby will be pop­ping be­tween his Moul­ton Pad­docks yard here at HQ and his Mar­moon sta­bles in Dubai dur­ing the win­ter. Saeed bin Suroor will be based at the Godol­phin Al Quoz sta­bles in Dubai but all will re­turn in time for our new sea­son come the end of March.

FRANKIE Det­tori popped in to the Gos­den yard this week to visit EN­ABLE and he told me how pleased he is to learn she is stay­ing in train­ing for next sea­son and try­ing to land a third Arc at Longchamp next au­tumn. EN­ABLE looks ab­so­lutely fabulous at the mo­ment and her coat is still in won­der­ful con­di­tion.

GOS­DEN gives a first start at Wolver­hamp­ton this evening to CASANOVER and we are all look­ing for­ward to it. This son of Frankel was a late foal and has been pa­tiently han­dled. Rob Havlin should have a good ride but next sea­son over mid­dle dis­tances is when this colt owned by Princess Haya will be seen at his very best. RE­CENTLY re­tired EX­PERT EYE has set­tled in well at his new sur­round­ings at Banstead Manor Stud here in New­mar­ket and he should do well as a stal­lion for Jud­dmonte.

James Sav­age was sorry to see him leave the Stoute yard. How well James cared for him and rode the colt out ev­ery day.
