Nick Luck Daily Ep 658 – Flightline, Frankel and the Big Freeze

Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. After hearing from the clerks at Ascot, Haydock and Taunton about the somewhat mixed prospects of racing this weekend, they consider the World’s Best Racehorse Rankings, which gave Flightline (140) a rating equivalent to Frankel. Nick talks to IFHA co-chair Dominic Gardiner-Hill, as well as co-owner of Flightline Terry Finley of West Point Thoroughbreds. Nick and Lee also look at the Cheltenham Novice Chase entries, wonder whether it’s time for the National Hunt Chase, and trainer Paddy Neville joins the show to discuss the likeliest route for The Real Whacker. Robert Waley-Cohen outlines “Plan B” for Noble Yeats, forced to miss this weekend through a vaccination admin error, while Nick and Lee run through the Danny Brock case plus the potential moving of the Cox Plate. JA McGrath chips in from Hong Kong.
