London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/01/2012 -- Sporting Index, the world’s leading sports spread betting firm, have predicted the unbeaten Frankel will win Wednesday’s Group One Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood by seven lengths.
Facing just three rivals, the firm expect the colt to improve on both his average winning distance, which is over five lengths in 11 career starts so far, and extend the margin of five lengths by which he defeated Canford Cliffs in this race last year.
Sporting Index’s market, ‘Franks for Coming’, allows punters to buy (bet higher) or sell (bet lower) on a spread of 67-73 - the number of lengths he wins by multiplied by 10.
Wayne Lincoln, Sporting Index spokesman, said: “On paper we think Frankel is as big a banker as punters can get but, considering he is due to step up to 10 furlongs next month for the first time, we feel Tom Queally won’t give the star too hard a race. Farhh does boast some top Group One form this year and with Frankie on board we hope he will get a bit closer than Excelebration last time.”
