Fantastic Frankel Wins Queen Elizabeth II Stakes

Anticipation, excitement and nerves set the stage for a magnificent Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Sponsored By Qipco (British Champions Mile) (Group 1) for the 3:35 Ascot. 
An eight-strong field the highlight of the day with all eyes on Sir Henry Cecil's wonder horse Frankel, ridden by Tom Queally. There was no need for nerves, simply a revilement of a superb performance which saw Frankel, held-up off the pace, stride on in the final two furlongs to win by a four-length margin with Excelebration finishing a gallant second for Marco Botti, while Immortal Verse came third.
