Frankel started a long odds-on favourite for the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket, and he lived up to those high expectations by delivering one of the most dominant Group One performances in racing history. He jumped straight to the lead, and kept on extending his lead to around 15 lengths with 4 furlongs to go. Dubawi Gold and Native Khan chased valiantly, but Frankel was too far in front and won easily by 6 lengths. The performance earned him a Timeform rating of 142 - the fourth-equal highest rating ever.
