Frankel will face ten rivals when he bids to extend his unbeaten record in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot on Tuesday.

Sir Henry Cecil's colt has won all ten of his previous races, but his record failed to scare off his rivals with Aidan O'Brien relying on Excelebration to lead his charge.

So You Think will not race, instead being entered for Wednesday's Prince of Wales's Stakes. Cecil has entered Bullet Train as a likely pace maker, while O'Brien runs a pacemaker in Windsor Palace.

Richard Hannon has entered Strong Suit for his season debut, while Side Glance, a winner in the Diomed Stakes at Epsom, has also been entered. Worthadd, Side Glance, Premio Loco, Red Jazz and Helmet complete the field.

Meanwhile, Power leads a field of 16 for the St James's Palace Stakes on Tuesday. John Gosden has three representatives in the shape of The Nile, Fencing and Gergorian, while Wrote and Born to Sea are also in the final entrants.
