The Queen opened her seasonal score with a win at Chelmsford yesterday. Trained by Hannon, the 3yo Sergeant Major is no star and may well be sold soon: but it's a start. Usually by this time in March one would expect to know more about her plans for 2021 but very few of her 2yos have been placed with trainers so far according to the BHA site. What is known is that most of her 3yo colts have been gelded. Balding has said Tactical's (still entire) first race will be the Greenham, but there's no entry for the 2000G, which isn't surprising. There are no entries in the Guineas but surprisingly there are entries for the French classics. Gosden's Wakening is entered for the French 1000G, while she plus Haggas's Companionship have entries for the Prix de Diane. Haggas has had a real skill in entering Royal 3yos in classics in the last 3-4 years often resulting in disappointments. I'm sure it's not his fault, but let's hope he's luckier this year (last year's big hope was Award Scheme, who initially disappointed but did eventually get two victories and some placed black type). I'm expecting Horses in Training to drop through the letter box next week, so more news then.
