I might be wrong, but I think your thinking is wrong here.

You cannot control (from in flow) the frame that a page is presented in, 
because the browser does a request for a specific frame, and that's 
where the result will be shown.

To achieve what you want, you'd have to do it with some client side 
javascript. Send back a response including some javascript that makes 
the browser reload the other frame.

Hope this makes sense.
