Horse Betting: Frankel forges onwards at Goodwood
Tom Queally was never too far behind on Frankel in second and the favourite, sent off at a Betfair SP of 1.08, eased to the front with a couple of furlongs to travel.
Following his 11-length demolition job in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, the world's highest-rated racehorse faced just three rivals as he defended his Goodwood crown, including his pacemaker Bullet Train.
The latter predictably cut out the early running, but Tom Queally was never too far behind on Frankel in second and the favourite, sent off at a Betfair SP of , eased to the front with a couple of furlongs to travel. The result was never in doubt as Sir Henry Cecil's incredible four-year-old pulled away in the closing stages to register an easy win.
Godolphin's Farhh came through to finish a distant six-length second. Farhh had been supplemented for the race following two excellent runs at the highest level, finishing third in the Prince of Wales's Stakes at Royal Ascot and second in the Eclipse at Sandown. However, it was clear rounding the home turn that he would not be troubling Frankel as Frankie Dettori was already hard at work just to keep up, as was Paul Hanagan on Gabrial.
Queally said: "Every moment spent on his back is a special moment and today was no different. He's amazing, he had all the other horses cooked just after halfway and it was a nice prep for his next race.
"He's a class apart from anything else at the moment, he does it all very easily therefore I have a very easy job, all I have to do is steer.
"These are magic moments and it's great to be part of it."
