Immortal Verse Has Date With Frankel

FLYING French filly Immortal Verse could clash with the unbeaten Frankel in the Qipco-sponsored Queen Elizabeth II Stakes at Ascot on British Champions Day after connections confirmed her for the Group 1 on October 15.

Immortal Verse featured among a list of 14 acceptors for the race on Wednesday and is on course to bid for a third successive Group 1, following top-level victories in the Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot and Prix Jacques Le Marois at Deauville.

The Robert Collet-trained three-year-old is owned by Richard Strauss and his Kilfrush Stud manager, Brendan Hayes said: “Immortal Verse is very well and we are targeting the Queen Elizabeth II Stakes with her. We are optimistic and it looks like it is going to be a great race.

“Hopefully, she can show her usual turn of foot, although it is certainly going to be an interesting race in terms of tactics. A good pace would suit us.

well it looks like they will!!
@woodbinemile, At their best, I think both Immortal Verse and Dick Turpin are really good turf milers. But Frankel's really in a category all his own. I think Immortal Verse is likely to find out the hard way that beating Goldikova over a mile like she did in the Prix Jacques Le Marois is a different proposition altogether than trying to beat to Frankel over a mile? JMO.
Bring it on Dick turpin, and Immortal Verse....Frankel will have them off the bit after 3f. NOBODY runs with the freak.
