Racing Post Handicapper Rates Frankel's Juddmonte 142
Highly respected Racing Post handicapper Paul Curtis has reacted to Frankel's 7-length stroll in home in the Gr1 Juddmonte International Stakes at York by rating the performance at 142. That's the same extraordinary rating "as when he slammed Excelebration over a mile at Royal Ascot in June" reports racingpost.com. Curtis remarked: "This was another hugely impressive visual performance that sets him apart from other genuine Gr1 horses. To break the 140 mark again is remarkable and underlines Frankel's class in that it has been achieved over two furlongs further and under a more patient ride than the pace-tracking style of his Royal Ascot success."
