What the expert says...
The legendary Frankel won this race in 2011 and then went on to win the 2,000 Guineas next time out, however, six runners have attempted to repeat that feat since and all have failed. Kingman (2014) and Barney Roy (2017) have gone the closest both finishing runner-up in the Guineas.
