Mohaather Back In The Groove After Newbury Success

Horse Racing

Mohaather produced a memorable performance on his first season star, and Marcus Tregoning has claimed that the horse is in excellent condition following the Greenham Stakes at Newbury.

He concluded his juvenile season with a spectacular success in the Horris Hill Stakes, and he showcased all those skills once again over the weekend; proving once and for all that it was no fluke at the back end of last season. Mohaather was dominant at Newbury, and his rivals couldn’t get close.

He is now priced at a moderate 16/1 for the Qipco 2000 Guineas next month at Newmarket. The favourite within the betting remains Too Darn Hot for John Gosden, who missed out on his intended season bow at the weekend. However, that hasn’t affected his price, and he remains the 7/4 favourite.

Speaking to reporters after his run, Tregoning said: “He’s absolutely fine this morning, and we’re pleased with him.

“It was a perfect day. He did what we hoped he would do, which is always nice.”

Looking ahead to a potential clash with Too Darn Hot on the Rowley Mile, the trainer added: “Whether he turns up in the Guineas or not, there has to be a question mark. It could be a wide-open race, or it might not be.

“We are very happy with our horse – he looks progressive – and I think he probably will run in the Guineas, but we’ve still got three weeks to go.”

It would be a significant step up should Mohaather line up for the 2000 Guineas, it will be his first start over a mile. Punters will undoubtedly have questions about his stamina.

Tregoning said:

“I think he’ll give himself a chance to stay the mile as he settles so well. Hopefully, off a strong pace, he’ll be fine.

“He does have a lot of speed, but you’ve got to have the speed to win a Guineas.”

It has been 13 years since Tregoning saddled Sir Percy to win the Epsom Derby. He finally has another star on his hands now.

He said:

“Every trainer, owner and jockey wants a good horse as it just highlights the operation.

“We’re certainly looking forward to the rest of the year with this horse.”
