Frankel is set to be sent off the shortest-priced 2000 Guineas favourite since 1970 Triple Crown winner Nijinsky.
The Galileo colt did what was expected of him on Saturday, winning the Greenham Stakes at Newbury.
Victor Chandler are not surprisingly the shortest price in the village having laid an ante-post bet of STG550,000 ($A853,639) at 10-11 before the Newbury race and they now quote him at 4-9.
“We wouldn’t be able to lay a bet of that size off with anybody so instead we just want to keep him on our side now,” said Victor Chandler’s Charlie McCann.
“It’s unusual these days for the Guineas favourite to have a trial so punters are usually guessing but we’ve seen Frankel already this year so there is no mystique about him.”
Totesport are 1-2 about Frankel for the Guineas.
“The problem the layers have for the Guineas now if you offer 4-5 about Frankel is the possibility of a small field,” said totesport’s George Primarolo.
“On what we’ve seen the Guineas should be a penalty kick for him.
“The slightly strange aspect was that some firms shortened him for the Derby, especially after World Domination won.
“Connections were probably hoping Frankel would mature over the winter and settle better but that wasn’t the case yesterday. If he pulls hard, coupled with the undulations of Epsom, you’d have to be worried about him staying the Derby trip.”
