Cracksman (GB) (Frankel {GB}) has been assigned a rating of 130 for his six-length score in the G1 Qipco Champion S. at Ascot last month, bringing him equal with four-time G1 Cox Plate winner Winx (Aus) (Street Cry {Ire}) in the top spot on the Longines World’s Best Racehorse Rankings.

American Horse of the Year Gun Runner (Candy Ride {Arg}) remains second at 128 for his lone start in 2018, a win in the GI Pegasus World Cup, while G1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth S. and G1 Prince of Wales’s S. winner Poet’s Word (GB) (Poet’s Voice {GB}) and champion 3-year-old-elect Roaring Lion (Kitten’s Joy) are joint fourth at 127.

Three horses are tied for sixth at 126: last weekend’s GI Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Accelerate (Lookin at Lucky), recent G2 Sha Tin Trophy winner Beauty Generation (NZ) (Road To Rock {Aus}) and G2 Hardwicke S. winner Crystal Ocean (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}).
