Mutasaabeq will be the ride of Jim Crowley in the Joel Stakes on Friday. The five-year-old returned to the track after a 67-day break in late August, as he finished seventh of eleven in the G2 City of York Stakes.
He steps back up to a mile this week, and his chances are certainly handed a boost based on the fact that he has won on each of his previous two starts over course and distance.
That includes a three-length victory over Native Trail earlier in the season in the G2 Bet365 Mile. Should go well once again at Newmarket.
