Ascot on Moohaarib agenda
Last Updated: 20/07/14 1:01pm
Moohaarib, one of the leading ante-post fancies for the Betfred Mile at Glorious Goodwood, is likely to run at Ascot this weekend instead.
Trained by Marco Botti, the Oasis Dream colt has won his last two races in the style of a young horse going places.
Unraced at two, he got off the mark at the third time of asking at Ripon before making his opening handicap mark of 85 look pretty lenient.
"The plan is to run Moohaarib at Ascot," said Botti.
"There's a three-year-old handicap over the straight mile (Weatherbys Private Banking Handicap) which is worth quite a lot of money (£45,000).
"So while he's in at Goodwood, he'll probably run at Ascot I think."
