Jockey Bryony Frost looks set to receive a distinguished achievement of two Saturday mounts at Ascot this Saturday.
The 22-year-old Frost was relatively unknown a year ago, but has exploded onto the racing scene with a string of good Saturday performances, and a Grade One victory to her name.
With a packed weekend of racing ahead at Ascot, trainer Paul Nicholls thinks he might have two rides available for Frost.
With Black Corton in the Reynoldstown and Frodon in the big Ascot Chase, Nicholls will be looking for a talented mount to get his horses into the finishing positions.
.Nicholls pondered the idea of Frost riding Frodon:
It’s quite possible Bryony’ll ride Frodon because he can do really, really well for her, She probably deserves to ride him. She listens, she’s enthusiastic but, most of all, the horses run and jump for her. It’s natural ability, isn’t it?
Nicholls’ principle jockey Sam Twiston-Davies is expected to take rides at Haydock on Saturday, and other favourite Harry Cobden has an enticing opportunity at Wincanton, so the honour may fall to Frost to saddle up for both races on Saturday.
