Frankel 4-6 to beat elders in possible Sussex clash
FRANKEL is just 4-6 with Coral to win the Qipco Sussex Stakes at Goodwood in July on what could be his first clash with his elders.
Henry Cecil's stunning Qipco 2,000 Guineas winner, who is set to run first in the St James's Palace Stakes at Royal Ascot, heads a superb entry of 35, which includes last year's winner Canford Cliffs and the former Australian-trained sensation So You Think.
Canford Cliffs, Coral's 2-1 clear second favourite, also has a trip to Royal Ascot on the agenda, for the Queen Anne Stakes, but Richard Hughes is looking forward to riding him again at Goodwood.
He said: "All going well, he will hopefully go to the Sussex Stakes again this year."
The £300,000 Group 1 mile contest on July 27 has also attracted the likes of Jan Vermeer, Rajsaman, Dream Ahead, Dubawi Gold, Roderic O'Connor and Wootton Bassett.
Coral Qipco Sussex Stakes betting:
4-6 Frankel, 2 Canford Cliffs, 5 So You Think, 16 Misty For Me, Roderic O'Connor, 20 Dream Ahead, Dubawi Gold, 25 Wootton Bassett, Casamento, Together, Delegator, 33 Premio Loco, Rio De La Plata, 40 Jan Vermeer.
