Frankly Mr Shankly (Maxios) wins well at Chelmsford for Michael Bell and owners Patrick & Scott Bryceland .
Ridden by Clifford Lee here, Frankly Mr Shankly was settled just off the pace throughout much of this 1m2f contest. When asked to quicken 2f from home, he did so in pleasing fashion and won going away by 1 3/4 lengths at the line.
Having relaxed well through the race here, he should now be able to take this improvement forward as he is stepped up in distance.
Frankly Mr Shankly was purchased for 60,000gns from Book II of the 2018 Tattersalls October Yearling Sales.
