This has always been the plan for the mighty FRANKEL and he can pass this stiffer test of stamina with flying colours. Nothing has managed to get him off the bridle over 1m this year and Farhh, even if he takes his chance, looks to have no hope of reversing Sussex Stakes form with Sir Henry Cecil's superstar. The only worry would be if regular pacemaker Bullet Train and St Nicholas Abbey's stable companions, Robin Hood and Windsor Palace, were to set a suicidal gallop but even then you suspect that the world's top-rated equine performer would have the pace to outpoint St Nicholas Abbey, who is infinitely better over 1m4f. Cecil also runs last year's winner Twice Over and he has place claims along with Sri Putra, who often goes well at a big price in this type of race though did finish behind Farhh and Twice Over in the Coral-Eclipse.
