January 4 The Frankel colt Solo Saxophone made a winning start to his hurdles career at Catterick and is likely to be out again by the end of the January.

The Dan Skelton-trained four-year-old has the Fred Winter Juvenile Handicap Hurdle as his main aim, and will need to get some more experience before then.

His debut win did not come without alarm as he traded at 100-1 in-running before storming home by four lengths.

"He'll probably be out in late January, the weekend of January 20-21, and at the moment we are looking at the Fred Winter at Cheltenham," said Richard Ward of owners BGC Racing.

"My gut feeling is that he'll probably need a bit further in time, but it probably looks a better performance now that it did at the time as the (Brian) Ellison horse (Haulani, third) ran a cracker at Kempton.

"Dan has always said he's got a bit to learn. He was still very novicey and he looked beat down the back.

"I think he'll go on any ground and I don't think we're anywhere near the bottom of him.

"Something is nagging at me to suggest he's not exceptional, but as yet there's no reason not to think he could be - that might be me being pessimistic.

"Harry (Skelton) said the bigger the field, the better he'll be. In Ireland on the Flat he wore headgear so we've still got a bit to play with.

"The one thing I will say is that you can't be trading 100-1 in-running at Cheltenham - you can't give those good horses a start.

"There's still no other Frankels to have been out over jumps and he's got his own Twitter page, so he's got a bit of a following."
