Frankel

THE brilliant Frankel stretched his unbeaten run to seven by landing the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.


Sent off at 30-100, Frankel stormed clear turning for home, but began to fade as the Aidan O'Brien-trained Zoffany got going for Ryan Moore.

Right after Frankel crossed the wire just 3/4 of a length ahead of Zoffany in the St Jame's Palace, the camera man spanned his camera into the stand's, and pointed it at Sir Henry Cecil. A picture really is worth a thousand word's. Because Cecil had a real look of disgust on his face for jockey Tom Queally not carrying out his instruction's, and very nearly allowing his star colt to get at the wire by Zoffany. Cecil did not look happy, one bit. I'd imagine he'll be telling Tom Queally that from now on, he ride's Frankel Henry's way, or no way at all!!
Given the severity of the mistake made by Tom Queally with that very premature move in the St James's Palace, Frankel is very lucky that it was just inferior 3yr.old's that he was facing today, IMO. He was definitely paddling at race's end, and Zoffany was closing on him like a shot. Henry Cecil's been talking about taking Frankel to Goodwood next to take on Canford Cliffs in this year's G1 Sussex Stakes. But what I saw out of Canford Cliffs and Goldikova in the Queen Anne today, if Frankel had been facing top level, older milers like Canford Cliffs or Goldikova in this race? He definitely would've been swept aside, and dealt his first career loss today. JMO.
