Frankel will continue his preparations for the Qipco Champion Stakes with a gallop at Newmarket on Wednesday morning.

The world's highest-rated racehorse will be partnered by three-parts brother and regular work companion Bullet Train on the Rowley Mile at 8.30am, ahead of what is likely to be the Sir Henry Cecil-trained colt's final race at Ascot on Saturday week.

Newmarket stage the Dubai Future Champions Day this weekend and director of racing Michael Prosser is pleased with the state of the ground.

He said: "We are currently enjoying a beautiful autumnal day and the ground is good to soft with a Going-Stick reading of 6.9

"The forecast is for Wednesday to be dry. It is also predicted to be dry for much of Thursday before a band of rain is anticipated late afternoon. That should have gone through by dawn on Friday."
