Frankel could still make his seasonal reappearance in next month’s Lockinge Stakes at Newbury after being given the all-clear to resume training.

The four-year-old is the world’s highest rated racehorse following a stellar campaign in 2011 during which he won four Group One prizes including the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket.

He hurt his off foreleg last week and while it was initially reported to be a minor problem, it later transpired the injury could be more serious.

Those fears have now been allayed following a scan and trainer Sir Henry Cecil hopes he could still make the trip to Newbury.

“He obviously hit his tendon quite badly and there was a lot of haemorrhaging. I was always very hopeful as it didn’t feel like a normal tendon (injury), but you never know,” Cecil told Racing UK.

“He’s got a tremendously long stride and he went on to the grass on Racecourse Side for the first time and I think he hit his front leg with his back leg on the tendon.

“He was scanned this morning very thoroughly and everything with his tendon is fine. I’ve had him walking and trotting, everything seems to have settled down, we’ll resume work and we’ll feel our way.

“I’d like to make Newbury if possible because it’s a long time with a horse like that to hang around until (Royal) Ascot. Then you’ll get hardened horses who’ve had a race or two.”

Cecil had initially planned to take Frankel for a racecourse gallop at Newbury this weekend and while that idea has been shelved, he could still take his stable star for a day away if he feels it is required.

“If I have to take him somewhere I’ll take him. He’ll probably resume cantering this weekend,” he said.
