All well with Lockinge-bound Frankel

Frankel remains on course to make his eagerly-awaited four-year-old bow in the JLT Lockinge Stakes at Newbury next month.

Frankel remains on course to make his eagerly-awaited four-year-old bow in the JLT Lockinge Stakes at Newbury next month.

Having been given the all-clear to resume training following an injury scare, trainer Sir Henry Cecil reports his superstar colt to be progressing well.

Speaking at Newbury after saddling Frankel’s full-brother Noble Mission to victory, Cecil said: “He’s fine, he did two canters yesterday and two canters this morning.

“Hopefully I will get him ready for the Lockinge (on May 19).

“He is usually better for his first run and I don’t want him to go straight into the big races in the summer.”
