Frankel ‘bouncing’ ahead of Sussex Stakes

Updated: July 3, 2012

The awesome,unbeaten, Frankel is in top shape as he builds up towards an attempt at landing back to back runnings of the Sussex Stakes at Glorious Goodwood at the beginning of August.

Sir Henry Cecil’s brilliant stable star was last seen at Royal Ascot where he destroyed the field in the Queen Anne Stakes over a 1m. While Frankel is due to step up in trip in the Juddmonte Stakes at York in August, the Sussex is next on his agenda and Teddy Grimthorpe, racing manager to owner Prince Khalid Abdullah, told Sky Sports News on Tuesday that the son of Galileo is bang on course for Goodwood.

“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.”
