Frankel Fever

"The Wonder Horse." Worth a "conservative £100million." 
"The greatest racehorse of our time." 
These are all epithets attributed to Frankel, the Sir Henry Cecil trained, Prince Khalid Abdulla owned thoroughbred which today will pace into the paddock at Ascot to attempt his 14th win in 14 starts. 
Even if horse racing isn't your thing, today sporting history is being written. This Saturday is also momentous as it may be the last time this Bucephalus of the modern age will race in front of a crowd of expectant punters. Tune in to BBC1 at 4.05 to have a heart-in-your-mouth, edge-of-your-seat moment.
