Race of the Summer? Frankel v Canford Cliffs... today
The Sussex Stakes G1 goes off in about 8 hours. That's 3:10 local time at glorious Goodwood.... 10:10 EST, 9:10 CST, and 7:10 PST and just after midnight on the east coast of OZ, for all you interested folks around the world.
Besides the main protagonists, there are two other horses in the race, Rio the la Plata and Rajsaman, at 50/1 and 33/1 respectively..... it's not often you see a multiple G1 winner go off at 50/1 in a four horse race.
Frankel is shading it in the betting at the moment, 4/5 to Canford Cliff's 11/8.
Personally think Canford just has too much turn of foot for the young wunderkind Frankel. We'll see.... should be a fascinating encounter.
