News:

Frankel’s No.1 son Cunco looks likely to be aimed at the Chesham Stakes at Royal Ascot following his headline-making success at Newbury.

The John Gosden-trained two-year-old was the first runner for Frankel in his stallion career, and did the mighty horse proud on Friday as he showed a smart change of gear to win in some style.

“He came out of the race well and he’s in good order,” Gosden said.

“He’s a grand colt with plenty about him and if we’re going to go to Ascot, the Chesham would be the race that we’d go to.”

Not only was the Chilean-owned Cunco the first offspring of Frankel to make it to the track, he was also his first-born foal, on January 11, 2014, meaning he shared a birthday with his late trainer, Sir Henry Cecil.

Like the unbeaten Frankel, he also won his first race on Friday the 13th.
