World’s highest rated horse in great shape ahead of next race

Frankel is reported to be “bouncing” ahead of his attempt to stretch his perfect record to 12 race at Glorious Goodwood next month.

The Qipco Sussex Stakes on August 1 will, as expected, be the next port of call for the four-year-old, who was last seen delivering an 11-length demolition in the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Sir Henry Cecil’s charge will then head to York for the Juddmonte International on August 22, when he tackles a mile and a quarter for the first time.

Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Khalid Abdullah, told Sky Sports News: “Frankel is in very good form.

“He came back from Ascot in great nick – bouncing, eating, kicking.

“I think Henry was really happy with him after Ascot and we want him to come out of a race like that.

“As for the future he’s heading towards the Sussex Stakes at Goodwood on August 1. Then, all being well, he’ll go to York for the Juddmonte.”
