Verdict

Tactics can sometimes lead to false results in small fields but they are unlikely to have an effect on the brilliant FRANKEL, who wins as he likes from any position. Now officially the world's best racehorse, he's frightened the opposition away after his demolition job in the Queen Anne and with his pacemaker Bullet Train here to ensure a fair gallop it looks just a question of how far. Godolphin's Farhh is an admirable performer who has progressed from winning a couple of handicaps to occupying places in the Prince Of Wales's Stakes and the Eclipse. He looks booked for second spot ahead of the much improved Gabrial, who ran very well in the St James's Palace after landing the Silver Bowl at Haydock.
