Frankel’s full brother, Noble Mission, is expected to make his eagerly-awaited racecourse debut next month.
Sir Henry Cecil trains the Galileo colt, who is out of Kind and owned like Frankel by Khalid Abdullah. The horse has entries in some of the top backend juvenile races such as the Dewhurst Stakes and Racing Post Trophy.
Abdullah’s racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe, speaking on The Morning Line said: “I saw him the other night and he is in great shape. Henry is very pleased with him.
“He is a very nice sort, I suppose he is just slightly unlucky given who his brother is.
“I hope he will see a racecourse in early October.”
Regarding Frankel, Grimthorpe added: “We always hoped he would be as good as he is. He was a lovely foal, an exceptional yearling and he has progressed even from there.
“But you do have to pinch yourself at the sort of performances he has put in this year.”
