The former Marco Botti-trained colt, now with Aidan O'Brien, has been on the receiving end of Frankel's awesome power on four occasions already and he's rated a next best 5-1 in the market.
Betfred have decided to dangle a carrot to any punters in the slightest doubt over Frankel's dominance by offering the field at 7-2, in the hope one of his ten rivals can cause one of the biggest shocks in Royal Ascot history.
Despite that offer, Betfred spokesman George Primarolo thinks the even money his firm offered about Frankel winning by five lengths or more may prove the most appealing bet in the race.
He said: "The majority of punters clearly think that Frankel can't be beaten in the Queen Anne and it's highly possible that we'll see more interest on Sir Henry's colt winning the race by over five lengths at even money than for him to simply win the race at 1-6."
