Maljoom has been handed the Prix Jacques le Marois as his next likely destination following his luckless run at Royal Ascot.
Cieren Fallon had nowhere to opt for much of the Ascot right in the St James’s Palace Stakes, yet when he did have daytime the German Guineas champion flew house and just ran out of time to capture Coroebus, needing to settle for what looked a frantically unlucky fourth.
Trainer William Haggas has rejected the concept of supplementing him for the Sussex Stakes to take on stable friend Baaeed and also will certainly rather send him to France trying to find a first Group One.
” Sheikha Hissa’s (Baaeed’s proprietor) uncle is Sheikh Ahmed (Maljoom’s owner) so I don’t believe there’s any kind of need to send Maljoom for the Sussex and also he’s not in it for a start off. I believe he’s mosting likely to go for the Jacques le Marois,” Haggas told Nick Luck’s Daily Podcast.
” I’m quite sure he’d have won with a clear run, they went no gallop because of race and also it was truly unpleasant. Ryan’s (Moore, Aikhal) equine fell back at the incorrect time and it was just one of those points that can occur.
” The horse made fast gains in the last furlong, as well as numerous viewers, believed he would certainly have won and also I agree, I think he would have done.”
One more stablemate, My Prospero, in fact, finished one place before Maljoom in 3rd but will now be stepped up in trip.
Haggas took place: “I assume My Prospero is an excellent equine, however, he just requires better. It was a threat running him as we know that, but it was the last Group One for three-year-olds.
” He won’t run at a mile once again, he has the choice of the Skies Bet Stakes at York or the Prix Eugene Adam, yet I require to consider it. He’s a large steed that will certainly be better following year.”
Haggas additionally confirmed that Baaeed, who sealed his placement as the best equine in Europe when winning Queen Anne, will certainly head for the Sussex and then be stepped up in journey for the Juddmonte International at York.
” I think that is the evident route. We have not discussed it fully but it appears the noticeable point due to the fact that he’s got to race, he’s four-year-old as well as he’s got to get on with it,” he claimed.
” He won well, as he was entitled to do. I was not overwhelmed by his performance– although he never came off the bridle truly– but the handicapper has put him up 3lb so he should have seen something so it was excellent.
” I think there’s perhaps something because he only does what he needs to do, like his dad (Sea The Stars), who was never flash yet he maintained winning over every range.
” This steed is doing what he has to do which is why rising in the journey will be so fascinating.”
