It was worth waking up early to watch the opening act of the 2012 Royal Ascot meet.
The handsome bay colt by Galileo broke well and sat just behind stablemate pacesetter Bullet Train. In the homestretch, he was never challenged and drew off in a powerful hand drive by jockey Tom Queally.
Longtime rival Excelebration, who raced side-by-side with Frankel throughout the first three-quarters, could not match his winning stride and was a distant second.
