Frankel leaves fans in eleventh heaven

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Frankel extended his unbeaten run to 11 when winning the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot by a staggering 11 lengths.

Sir Henry Cecil’s superstar and the highest rated horse in the world put in his best performance ever as he strode clear under Tom Queally to make a class field look like selling platers.

It was his seventh Group One from just 11 career starts,and the 1/10 favourite could not have been any more impressive.

The colt’s brother Bullet Train adopted his usual front-running role and the wiritng was on the wall three from home as Queally eased the son of Galileo out into the clear and sat motionless in the saddle.

Push then came quickly came to shove for Excelebration, and Frankel left him trailing in his wake for the fifth time when he effortlessly changed gears.

They had 11 lengths to spare at the line, with Excelebration holding on for second from the fast finishing Side Glance.
