FROST REFLECTS ON FRODON

Bryony Frost was still on cloud nine when reflecting on Frodon's victory in yesterday's G1 £350,000 Ryanair Chase on this morning's The Opening Show on ITV.
 
Trained by Paul Nicholls, Frost and the seven-year-old son of Nickname made nearly all of the running in the two mile and five furlong event, staying on gamely up the Cheltenham hill to record a length and a quarter-victory.
 
Frost became the first woman to ride a G1 winner over hurdles or chases at The Festival™ presented by Magners aboard Frodon and she was effusive in her praise of the gelding when discussing yesterday's thrilling success.
 
She said: "I stopped off with the family to celebrate Frodon's success at the Gloucester services to have a burger and a coke.
 
"It hasn't quite sunk in yet. I text Clifford [Baker, assistant trainer] to see how Frodon was this morning and he was A1. He was squealing going down to the walker, so he's King Kong in Ditcheat this morning and so he should be!
 
"It's mad to be on the front pages. The world has just blown up since that win. It's cool as for a little while I can let everyone see it from my eyes and to see what an achievement it is here.
 
"Frodon's win means a lot. That's not because of who we are or whatever, it is just about the equine athletes and the supremacy of them. To be able to say Frodon is the best and that he won the Ryanair is very special."
 
Frost is based with Ditcheat handler Paul Nicholls and she is hoping for a big run from the progressive Clan Des Obeaux, ridden by Harry Cobden, in today's £625,000 G1 Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup (3.30pm).
 
She continued: "Clan Des Obeaux has got the class. As soon as he walked into Ditcheat, he was labelled a Gold Cup horse.
 
"Paul's horses are in great form and it's another big day for the team. He will give it a good shout. OK he has to prove he can win round Cheltenham, but he is a more mature horse now."
 
Frost rides Brelan D'As in the G3 Johnny Henderson Grand Annual Handicap Chase (4.50pm) and If You Say Run, both for Nicholls, in the concluding Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle (5.30pm).
