Newbury next for Frontieres

The CGA Geoffrey Freer Stakes is the next objective for Jeremy Noseda’s smart Sans Frontieres.

The CGA Geoffrey Freer Stakes is the next objective for Jeremy Noseda’s smart Sans Frontieres.

The Galileo colt has had his share of problems over the last 12 months but put a couple of disappointing efforts behind him with a taking performance in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket.

The form of that race looks good with the runner-up Redwood going on to subsequent Goodwood glory and Barry Simpson, racing manager to the owner Sir Robert Ogden, hopes Sans Frontieres can continue his revival at Newbury on August 14.

“Jeremy has been very happy with him since Newmarket and the Geoffrey Freer is his next target,” said Simpson.

“It was fantastic to see him go and win there after a couple of indifferent runs earlier in the season.

“He’s not a horse who needs a lot of work once he’s got up to full fitness and we’re looking forward to Newbury.

“His form looks very solid and looking forward we could go for something like the Irish St Leger.

“We’ve also given him a Melbourne Cup entry, but obviously he’ll have to prove he can win at that level before we think about going for that.”
