Cheltenham Festival's top trainer Gordon Elliott is set to make history, as Commentariolus will become the first son of the great Frankel to go jumping.

The three-year-old has been purchased out of French trainer Pascal Bary's yard, having run creditably in two starts in maiden company.

Frankel, who was unbeaten in fourteen starts, has enjoyed a good start to his breeding career with the likes of Derby third Cracksman, Group Two winning Eminent and Japanese Oaks winner Soul Stirring boasting him as one of the world's leading sires.

"He’s a fine stamp of a horse", said Elliot.

"He will go juvenile hurdling and is currently available for sale. We will keep him at the yard, and we're looking for owners at the moment.

"We're looking forward to the future with him."

Frankel enjoyed success at Royal Ascot this season with Godolphin's Atty Persse, and Commentarioulus may give Henry Cecil's superstar a win at jump racing's biggest week, the Cheltenham Festival.

The three-year-old may make his hurdling debut in the coming months.

Any buyers interested in the horse should contact Gordon Elliott's racing secretary Zoe Winston.
