Frankel is “bouncing” ahead of his return to Glorious Goodwood.

The Qipco Sussex Stakes on August 1 will be the next port of call for the four-year-old after 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, tackling 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.”
