Frankel Readies for Queen Elizabeth II Stakes

10 September 25: Frankel (no. 2), ridden by Tom Queally and trained by H. R. A. Cecil, wins the Royal Lodge Stakes for two year olds at Ascot Racecourse in Ascot, England. (Bob Mayberger/Eclipse Sportswire)
FRANKEL continued his preparation for the Qipco Queen Elizabeth II Stakes on October 15 with an impressive piece of work under big-race jockey Tom Queally on Friday morning.

Unbeaten in eight career starts, Frankel worked over 7½f on the Watered Gallop in Newmarket at around 6.30am with stablemates Handheld and Bullet Train.

Settled behind his two lead horses, Frankel travelled easily for Queally before asserting with around two furlongs to run, eventually finishing four lengths clear of his two companions.

"He's in grand order," said a delighted Queally. "He did it all very easily and it was a nice piece of work."

I just finished watching an interview with Sir Henry Cecil that's posted on the Racing Post web-site. Cecil was interviewd by Racing Post while they were showing footage of work's for Frankel, Twice Over, and Midday in prepartion for the Champion's Day card at Ascot coming up in October. Cecil had this to say about Twice Over and Midday, and I quote: There was little between the two on the day in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York that we've decided to run the two together again in the G1 Champion Stakes. That race will be Twice Over's final race before he's reitred to stud. Because he doesn't go well enough on conventional dirt to bring him over for the BC Classic. The Champion Stakes could also possibly be Midday's final race? Although she does have an entry for the BC F&M Turf, and we're going to see first how well she comes out of the race at Ascot before we decide whether or not she'll go to Churchill Downs? If Midday does go to the BC F&M Turf? That will be her final race, for sure. End quote!!
