Frankel is the star name among 40 initial entries for the Juddmonte International at York on August 22.

Frankel: Tops the International entry

Sir Henry Cecil's incredible colt made it 11 starts unbeaten with an awesome performance in last week's Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

The Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood is next for the world's highest-rated racehorse.

He will then step up to a mile and a quarter for the first time on the Knavesmire for the race sponsored by his owner, Khalid Abdullah.

Abdullah won the Group One prize with Twice Over last season and he, too, is in the mix for this year's renewal.

The clash everyone wants to see is Frankel versus unbeaten 2000 Guineas and Derby winner Camelot.

Camelot heads for this weekend's Irish Derby, but trainer Aidan O'Brien has given him the option of running at York.

Camelot is one of a host of entries for Ballydoyle.

Perhaps the most intriguing of the remainder is last week's Prince of Wales's Stakes winner So You Think.

O'Brien had suggested that next weekend's Coral-Eclipse would probably be the entire's final run before taking up stud duties in Australia.

Top-class middle-distance performer St Nicholas Abbey is another O'Brien entry.

Other contenders include the Queen's Carlton House, Derby runner-up Main Sequence and the Godolphin pair of Farhh and Monterosso.
