Henry Cecil Blog Update: Frankel Still Improving


"Frankel is still an improving horse. Hopefully it will be a nicely run race and he will do what we expect. "He was not easy early on but has grown up a lot and has improved physically. He has been going really well. "It looks like there are one or two good horses in the race and no race is a formality. There is no such thing as a 'good thing' but I am very happy with him. "I also run Bullet Train as a pacemaker. It could help me and it could also help everyone else, too.
Frankel could take up the running at a certain time but we haven't decided one, two or three things yet. "I don't want it to be a crawl and then turn into a sprint. It will depend on how the race is run as to whether it plays to Frankel's speed or stamina. "Bullet Train should make it a true-run race. He will not go off like hell in front but is there if we need him."
