    Dettori and Gosden said they would have been a good second to Love if she handled the course, which she didn’t. They added they wouldn’t have beaten the winner.

    Frankly darling lugged to the right against the camber the hole way down the straight which has cost her second

    But that was seriously impressive

    Well done anyone who backed her, especially anyone on at decent ante post prices

    Just a wow. Looks a totally uncomplicated filly. She was still motoring at the end. The second ran well and frankly darling never looked likely from well out. Not sure the camber made much difference just that the winner just different gravy. Enable love and magical in the arc. Sounds like a brilliant race already.

    Regarding Love and the Arc I’d be wary as they’ve kept Magical in training presumably for another crack at it, I seem to remember they had a similar predicament with Found when she won the Arc and Minding being the up and comer, sadly we never got to see what Minding could do in that regard as injury curtailed her 4 year old season early. No reason they both can’t run but Minding and Found were split up at the end of that season and I just wonder if they did that because Found had a torrid time there as a 3 year old and they might think its a race more suitable for a maturer filly/mare. She was very impressive yesterday and I suspect Frankly Darling on a more galloping track and Ennistymon in a weaker Group 1 will both show the form to be very good in time.

    I have to stop questioning Love it seems!

    The Arc has to be the target now. They can throw both Magical and Love at the Arc. I’d say Magical will need to have improved a good bit to hold back Love in an Arc. Even on just RPRs Magical’s best ever is 123, Love ran to 121 yesterday.

    If she keeps the wheels on I struggle to even see the great Enable beat Love. The progressive 3yo with the weight allowance vs the 6yo Enable.

    Magical will likely go to Ascot back end.

    Very, very impressive and well done winners. It really wouldnt surprise me if they go for the triple crown. I know she is a filly but that on the breeding CV would be untouchable. She could even win the triumph hurdle (I joke!) the way she goes through and finishes her races.

    Well played all. What initially seemed a three way battle, she won in an absolute procession.

    Angus McNae has just been on RTV talking about her performance. The time she ran for the last 7 furlongs was exceptional. She would ha e won the Derby if she had been in it, no question.

    If she was mine she would go for the King George in this unusual season. It did not do Enable any harm at the same age.

    Love would win the King George anyway but in receipt of the generous allowance she would be a certainty.

    Yeah well I definitely called that wrong!! Annoyed after backing her in the Guineas then deserting her, but that was pretty special. Well done backers. I won’t back FD again actually she looks a complicated ride. Don’t like those horses. I was wrong there!!
