Next month’s Qipco Irish Champion Stakes has not yet been confirmed as the next staging post for Noble Mission.

Connections of the rejuvenated five-year-old had mentioned the Leopardstown Group One on September 13 as a possible objective after he finished a close second in the Grosser Dallmayr-Preis at Munich on July 27.

Frankel's full brother also holds an entry in the Juddmonte International Stakes at York on August 20, but trainer Lady Cecil said: "We haven't made a decision yet regarding Noble's next race.

"He's fine, but Munich was quite a journey."

Noble Mission has been a reformed character since front-running tactics were deployed early this season, during which time he won three races on the spin, including in the Group One Tattersalls Gold Cup at the Curragh in May.
