CORAL on Sunday became the first firm to go odds-on about Frankel
in his eagerly awaited clash with Canford Cliffs in the Qipco Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.
Rival bookmakers make the unbeaten Henry Cecil-trained three-year-old a general 11-10 chance ashe takes on the older brigade for the first time. And while Coral's price of 4-5 was comfortably the shortest odds available on Sunday, they did offer a substantial carrot for anyone wishing to side with Canford Cliffs.
The firm make Frankel's market rival, who defeated Goldikova to notch three straight wins at Royal Ascot last month, an 11-8 chance, considerably bigger than any other bookmaker betting on the titanic duel on July 27.
The decision to be the only firm offering odds-on about the favourite follows another boost to Frankel's form lines after Dream Ahead took the Darley July Cup on Saturday.
