BRYONY Frost and Frodon returned to winning ways with a typically game performance in the Grade 2 Unibet Silviniaco Conti Chase over two miles, four and a half furlongs at Kempton.
The pair created headlines in the Ryanair Chase at last season’s Cheltenham Festival, as Frost became the first female rider to win a Grade 1 chase at the big meeting.
However, the first half of this campaign had not gone to plan for either, with Frodon disappointing in his two runs and Frost finding winners a little harder to come by.

Adopting their usual position at the head of affairs, Frodon looked a sitting duck as Daryl Jacob loomed up on the favourite Top Notch, with Keeper Hill also not out of it, but the race changed in a matter of strides.
As Frost asked for more, Frodon (5/4) quickened and caught Top Notch flat footed and by the last fence it was Keeper Hill who was the main danger.
Paul Nicholls’ Frodon is nothing if not game, though, and was foot perfect at the last, coming away to win by a length and a quarter.
