Mill Reef mission for Moohaajim
Tuesday 28 August 2012
Moohaajim is on target for the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes at Newbury on September 22 following his fine effort at Deauville.
The Marco Botti-trained juvenile was only two and a quarter lengths behind the brilliant winner Reckless Abandon when fifth in the Prix Morny.
The Newmarket handler felt the race did not work out for the Cape Cross colt, who was having only his only second start following a debut success at Ascot in July.
"He's come back fine after Deauville. The plan is to run in the Mill Reef Stakes next month," said Botti.
"He's a nice horse and it's a shame the race in France did not really pan out for him, but he showed he was up to that level.
"I was very pleased, but it was frustrating as with a bit of luck he could have been closer."
