Timeform have given Frankel provisional rating of 147 following his win in the Queen Anne Stakes, making him the highest-rated Flat horse in the firm's history.

If the mark is confirmed he will be two pounds ahead of Sea Bird and three clear of Brigadier Gerard and Tudor Minstrel.

David Johnson, Timeform's Flat Editor, said: "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 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 he has produced a rating above 140."

Chief Correspondent Jamie Lynch added: "Frankel has now proved himself the ultimate racehorse by breaking new ground in terms of ratings, and the thrilling aspect is we are only two races into his defining season.

"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."
