Looking forward to getting Mootaharer back on track

Wednesday is an important day for us as we get Muhaarar’s half brother Mootaharer back on track at Ascot. He looked good when he won his maiden at Newmarket eighteen months ago, however he had a nasty sinus infection last year which we just couldn’t clear and eventually he had to be operated on. He’s not a great work horse, and his performances on the track as a two year old were much better than what he showed us at home. However we are happy with his work this spring and he has had a racecourse gallop. Nevertheless he will probably be race rusty, and as he’s such a big horse the race will also tighten him up physically. We’re just delighted to see him racing again and looking at this as a stepping stone which should tell us a lot.

We also run Global Tango in the two year old maiden. He’s running against unpenalised winners so it’s a big ask, but he goes nicely and we’re looking forward to getting him out.

At Wolverhampton the Big Short gets another chance to break his maiden. He works much better at home than he’s shown on the track so far and we’re hoping a return to the all weather might help him.
