Frankel Full-Brother Fancied For Undercard
Meanwhile, Frankel's younger full-brother Noble Mission (Galileo-Kind, by Danehill) is fancied to get the ball rolling for trainer Sir Henry Cecil & owner Khalid Abdullah when he tackles the Gr2 Great Voltigeur Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YO colts at York, undercard to the afternoon's feature. Currently boasting 3 wins (including the Gr3 Gordon Stakes over 12 furlongs & Listed Newmarket Stakes over 10 furlongs) & 3 runners-up, Noble Mission is dropping back 2 furlongs in distance and takes on his promising stable-mate Thomas Chippendale (Dansili-All My Loving, by Sadler's Wells). The Cecil duo are both quoted at $5.50 behind $3.50 chance Main Sequence (Aldebaran-Ikat, by Pivotal).
