Past Winners » Mustazeed


I am backing Mustazeed here.  I don’t think that he should be a bigger price than Tuxedo Junction, whom he beat last time.

You can argue the case for Tuxedo Junction.  That was only his seventh run, his first of the season, his first since being gelded.  He should come on for it.  And he is 6lb better off with Mustazeed.

But it was also Mustazeed’s seasonal debut, and it was his first for trainer Harry Eustace.  And more importantly, he beat Tuxedo Junction, and Time Interval, who enhanced the form at Goodwood next time and who is, therefore, no better off with Mustazeed.

Mustazeed stayed on well to win nicely last time, he was well on top at the end.  The ground will be better today, but he goes well on good ground too, and we know that he goes well at Newbury.  He goes into the race in good form, and he could take another step forward.  He should have the race run to suit again (with front-runner Time Interval in the line-up again).
