Credit Queally for no panic.

TOM QUEALLY is not the greatest admirer of the racing press, and there have been times when members of the racing press have been given good reason not to be the greatest admirers of Queally, but it would be remiss not to comment on his role in the Frankel story.

It is possible to argue that any of Frankel's races could have been won with any jockey in the saddle but that analysis misses a crucial point. There was nothing Queally could do to make Frankel look better but he was certainly in a position to make Frankel look worse, as he could have done on Saturday but for reacting so sensibly and maturely to the superstar's extremely slow departure from the stalls.

He could have panicked but, to his great credit, he did not. His action played no small part in ensuring that the horse with which he will be forever associated remained unbeaten to the end.
