However, while Frankel is having his first run of the season, his main market rivals have already had an outing – something that Cecil believes is a “great advantage”.
Owned by Khalid Abdullah and rated the best horse in the world, Frankel is as short as 2-7 with Ladbrokes to brush aside six rivals in the 1m Group 1 contest and take his unbeaten record to ten races.
Cecil said: “Some of the opposition have had a race which is a great advantage, but I feel he has done enough to give a good account of himself.”
Quoted on his website, Cecil reported himself to be pleased with Frankel‘s preparation despite a hold up caused by an injury sustained during a gallop during the middle of last month.
He said: “Considering Frankel had a ten-day setback I am pleased with the progress he has made in preparation for the Lockinge at Newbury on Saturday.
“One thing I am pretty sure about is that he will come on for the race and will be a stronger and more settled horse this year.”
