Frankel faces 10 rivals in Queen Anne
Undefeated Frankel is set to take on 10 rivals in the Queen Anne Stakes (Eng-I) on the opening day of Royal Ascot this Tuesday.
The eight-furlong contest is the first of three group I races on the opening day of the five-day race meeting.
The Sir Henry Cecil-trained Frankel will be ridden once again by Tom Queally, and will be joined by his half-brother and pacemaker, Bullet Train in the Queen Anne. Frankel’s chief rivals appear to be Aidan O’Brien’s Excelebration, who he has defeated four previous times, and Strong Suit, a Richard Hannon-trained colt who captured the Burj Khalifa Challenge Stakes (Eng-II) last year.
