Frankel was today given a provisional Timeform rating of 147 for his Queen Anne victory at Royal Ascot, a figure which would put him at the top of the all-time list of Flat ratings.

"The facts are that Frankel’s performance is likely to surpass anything witnessed in Timeform’s 64-year history."

David Johnson, Timeform's Flat Editor, commented "The facts are that Frankel's performance is likely to surpass anything witnessed in Timeform's 64-year history. To give some perspective on just how phenomenal this effort was, in provisionally rating Frankel 147, we still have Excelebration (runner-up) running more than a stone below his previous best (133). A point worth emphasising is the consistency with which Frankel has produced such performances. This is the fifth time that he has produced a 140+ rating."

Jamie Lynch, Timeform's Chief Correspondent, reflected "Frankel has now proved himself the ultimate racehorse by breaking new ground in terms of ratings, and the thrilling aspect is we're only two races into his defining season, so it's not out of the question he could go higher still with different challenges ahead, including the tantalising prospect of meeting Camelot over a longer trip or targeting the Breeders' Cup."
