Frankel Next for Cirrus Des Aigles

CIRRUS DES AIGLES warmed up for his clash with Frankel in the Qipco Champion Stakes at Ascot in two weeks with an impressive victory in the Prix Dollar at Longchamp.

Trained by Corine Barande-Barbe, Cirrus Des Aigles finished second in the Dollar last year, but went one better on Saturday, repeating his 2010 victory in the race.

He was given a super-cool ride by Olivier Peslier, who settled the six-year-old in fourth before the pair gained command to run out easy winners.

Godolphin's Hunter's Light claimed second with Saga Dream third. The John Gosden-trained Colombian was fourth.

I agree that Cirrus des Aigles is the most formidable opponent Frankel has faces since Canford Cliffs, but that field he beat in the Dollar was weak. He should have at least won by as much and I believe more as he relishes that type of ground
OK, let's see what you're really made of Frankel, are you good or GREAT?
After Cirrus Des Aigles romp by 9 lengths in Saturday's G2 Prix Dollar, a potential Frankel-Cirrus Des Aigles match-up in the G1 Champion Stakes later this month now sounds more intriguing than ever. That said, I still believe it will take a combination of a different tactical ride by Peslier and the race really just falling apart for Frankel for anyone else in the Champion Stakes field to be running for more than 2nd place $. JMO.
