He really is just a great racehorse to watch.  I do love how patient he is and is willing to sit back and wait.

Cirrus Des Aigles ruled out of International

YORK'S attempts to guarantee some meaningful opposition to Frankel in the Juddmonte International Stakes suffered a major blow on Tuesday night, when Corine Barande-Barbe admitted defeat in her race to get Cirrus Des Aigles fit for the contest on August 22.

"I've talked to the owners and it's just not going to be possible," she confirmed from Chantilly on Tuesday.

And the field starts to get smaller

Nathaniel 'more likely' to run in Ireland than take on Frankel at York

• John Gosden plans to monitor weather before targets
• Dancing Rain might try International if field is small

Hopes that Frankel might face a worthy opponent in his next race began to fade last night as it emerged that Nathaniel may very well miss York's Juddmonte International in favour of another target in September. The news comes a day after Cirrus Des Aigles was ruled out of the International, having taken too long to recover from an ankle injury.

Sara here is a link to Frankel's racecard for his Wednesday race, he is going for his 13th win and it's his first attempt at 1 1/4 miles.

Ooof.  140 vs the low weight at 99!  Geez louise!  It will be a great race though - looking forward to seeing St Nich Abbey again... Farhh, Twice Over... Should be a good race and I really hope Frankel stretches it out easily!

I do too - he has always appeared to have plenty in his tank so I don't think the distance will be an issue at all.
