Frankel in Ascot

A short blog today because of the demands of another sport in the southern hemisphere but I can’t ignore Ascot. Why? It gives us another opportunity to see Frankel[1st] on the track. As the world’s highest rated horse will he confirm this status in today’s Queen Elizabeth II?
It is hard to see any other horse getting anywhere against him.  Possibly, Excelebration,[2nd] who has shown some form of late might get near and would be a good without Frankel bet. I doubt that any of the others will get near what is regarded as the best horse in the world.
1.50         Oipco British Champions Long Distance Cup 2 miles
Fame and Glory[1st] is the one to beat Opinion Poll[2nd] or Times Up could do it
2.25         Oipco British Champions Sprint Stakes (group 2) 6 furlongs
Deacon Blues [1st] is much improved and could take it from Moonlight Cloud
3.00         Oipco British Champions Fillies and Mares’ (group 2) 1 mile 4 furlongs
Vita Nova  from Ferdoos
3.35         Queen Elizabeth II stakes 1 mile (see above)
4.10         Oipco Champions stake(British Champions Middle Distance) (group 1) 1mile 2 furlongs
Dubai Prince or Cirrus Des Aigles [1st] has this race in sight for a while.
4.45         Oipca Future Stars Apprentice Handicap 7 furlong
Directorship or White Frost can take on Noble Citizen who does well here

Frankel did it by over 4 to 5 lengths and also as predicted our other choice  Excelebration came 2nd. Those that listened would have done very well. Frankel undoubtedly is the best horse in the world at this length. 

All other results in italic.
