Helmet Takes On Frankel In Today's UK Gr1 Queen Anne

Tuesday, 19th June 2012

Also during tonight's opening day card at Royal Ascot, Australian triple Gr1-winning 3YO colt Helmet (Exceed And Excel-Accessories, by Singspiel) is among the 10 rivals taking on the world's highest-rate galloper, unbeaten UK champion 4YO entire Frankel (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) who is seeking his 11th successive victory in the £350,000 (A$560,000) Gr1 Queen Anne Stakes (8 furlongs). Lucy Rhodes, a spokeswoman for bookmaking firm William Hill, said Frankel (trained by Sir Henry Cecil for owner-breeder Khalid Abdullah) is currently quoted at 1-6 & told racingpost.com: "Frankel looks certain to be one of the shortest-priced winners in the history of Royal Ascot." Helmet (who hasn't started since finishing 12th in March's Gr1 UAE Derby over 1800m at Meydan) is 35-1 in overnight markets.
