MILITARY ORDER (IRE) (Frankel {GB}) takes part in the latest of the Darley Novice races and is a fascinating runner in this conditions event which has a rich recent history of throwing up future Classic winners. Godolphin’s full-brother to the 2021 Derby and King George hero and stablemate Adayar (Ire) was off the mark at Newmarket in October and represents the Charlie Appleby stable successful in this with Hurricane Lane (Ire) (Frankel {GB}) two years ago. This race also played host to Star Of Seville (GB) (Duke Of Marmalade {Ire}), Enable (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) and Light Shift (Kingmambo), so it’s a case of eyes peeled!
