The Telegraph: Sir Henry Cecil and his Warren Place team - Dee, the lass who feeds him, Sandy 'who talks Indian cricket to keep the horse happy', and Shane Fetherstonhaugh, who rides him on his gallops - talk about life with a superstar as colt seeks to extend his unbeaten run at Ascot.

There is something very appealing about life with horses, as long as you can rise above heartbreak.

In two hours, under sunny skies, Frankel will run in the Queen Anne stakes.

UPDATE: Wow: Frankel, trained by Sir Henry Cecil and ridden by Tom Queally, makes it 11 wins out of 11 to take the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot by 11 lengths.
