10 out of 10, half a dozen Grade 1 races under the belt and still arguably the best horse on the planet.

My favourite thing about the above sentence is the word ”arguably”. The reason why I love it so much is because there’s a trainer Down Under called Peter Moody who would use that word to describe Frankel and his top billing.

The reason Mr Moody will take an exception to it is due to a mare by the name of Black Caviar who is set for a collision course with the Frankel come June in Royal Ascot. That’s what is most exciting about Frankel’s win in the JLT Lockinge Stakes on Saturday.

It was a straight-forward one mile return for Tom Queally aboard Frankel as he showed too much for Excelebration, trumping him by about four lengths as he stretched the field out over the last 4 furlongs. Frankel looked his usual impressive self; confident, composed and never truly under pressure.

That will all change come the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that Black Caviar makes the trip to Royal Ascot in full health and ready for the battle.
