Mutasaabeq will be gunning for Goodwood glory

Mutasaabeq is set to represent the Shadwell outfit in Saturday's Celebration Mile at Goodwood after connections confirmed the exciting Baaeed would instead head to France for the Group 1 Prix du Moulin at Longchamp next month.

Baaeed is 1.36 to claim the spoils in France on 5th September, while Poetic Flare and Victor Ludorum are available at 4.00 and 21.00 respectively.

Goodwood the next stop

One-time Classic prospect Mutasaabeq, who is trained Charlie Hills, was an easy winner at Newmarket in April, so was supplemented for the 2,000 Guineas and was not beaten far when seventh.

He flopped in the Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot, but got back on track at Haydock last time and heads to Sussex, where Baaed will not be on duty.

Instead of Baaeed we plan to run Mutasaabeq at Goodwood.

Haggas hoping for York rain

William Haggas's inmate took his record to four from four in thrilling style in the Thoroughbred Stakes at Glorious Goodwood, earning a crack at the highest level.

Hills's older brother Richard, Shadwell's assistant racing manager, said on Monday: "Baaeed will work this week and then we'll decide, but I think the plan is to take him to the Moulin, which will tell us whether he's a Group 1 horse or not.

"Instead of Baaeed we plan to run Mutasaabeq at Goodwood. We ran him in the 2,000 Guineas earlier in the year and he won a conditions race at Haydock last time."

High hopes for Mutasaabeq

Hills added: "We were going to run him in the City Of York Stakes at York last week, but we thought seven furlongs there would have been a bit on the sharp side for him, so we're going a mile at Goodwood.

"Charlie seems very happy with him, so all being well he'll go there. He's pretty versatile as regards ground so hopefully can put up a good performance."
