Moohaajim: Runs in the Greenham

Moohaajim: Runs in the Greenham

Moohaajim is set to make his seasonal reappearance in Saturday's AON Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

Seen as one of the more relevant Classic trials, Sir Henry Cecil used the Group Three as a stepping stone to Guineas glory for the brilliant Frankel two years ago.

Marco Botti's smart son of Cape Cross won two of his four juvenile starts with his only defeats coming in Group One company.

His inexperience cost him in the Prix Morny which was won by Reckless Abandon but he finished much closer to that rival when only going down by a quarter of a length in the Middle Park Stakes on his final start.

He is set to be ridden by Martin Harley for the first time in his career.

Chief among the dangers is Richard Hannon's Olympic Glory who has been the subject of positive vibes for next month's Qipco 2000 Guineas.

The Choisir colt's only defeat in five starts in 2012 came by three parts of a length behind Guineas favourite Dawn Approach in the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Olympic Glory signed off for the season with a commanding win in the Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp from leading 1000 Guineas candidate What A Name.

The five runner field is completed by Correspondent, Hiddon Coin and Sir Patrick Moore.
