Verdict

The superlatives ran out many months ago but once again FRANKEL raised the bar with a simply breathtaking display. He took up his customary position in the early stages just behind the front rank as stable companion Bullet Train cut out the pacemaking duties. He edged to the right of the latter with three furlongs to run to get a clear sight of the front as Excelebration managed to match strides with him until the quarter-mile pole. A quick shake of the reins by Tom Queally got his mount to lengthen and the race was over as a contest - it was just a matter of how far he would win by. The distance was 11 lengths at the line as Sir Henry Cecil's assessment that he continues to improve as he matures was highlighted in no uncertain terms. The options for him now are another crack at the Sussex Stakes and/or the step up to 10 furlongs for the Juddmonte International at York. The Knavesmire could see a mouthwatering showdown with impressive Epsom Derby hero Camelot and even that rival may end up wondering which way Frankel has gone. Excelebration has met Frankel five times and the winner more than doubled his winning advantage over him from the Lockinge Stakes, just showing how rapid Frankel's upward curve is currently. He just managed to cling on for second place as Side Glance closed all the way to the line with the Ballydoyle inmate gasping for oxygen as his exertions began to take a toll. German raider Indomito was patiently ridden by William Buick in last place and he managed to pick his way through the field for fourth as the rest of the field started to tread water. Strong Suit had been the subject of some good home reports ahead of his comeback but the dual Royal Ascot winner was a spent force from the distance. It would be prudent to assume that the trip stretches his stamina rather than this effort being down to lack of fitness. Worthadd was a little keen in the early stages just behind the pace and he dropped out rather tamely as the remainder failed to land any sort of blow.
