Rising Star Molatham Has Big Plans For Weekend

Molatham

Exciting two year old Molatham for owner Hamdan Al Maktoum and trainer Roger Varian looks to have a choice of races this weekend at Newmarket with his connections not officially allocating a specific contest for him on Saturday.

The juvenile has three times in his career starting his campaign off at Ascot where he was a narrow second to Richard Hannon's star youngster Mum's Tipple.

In his last two races he has shown how smart he can be winning both in determined style, seeing off a tough field of 14 at the Ebor meeting in a Class 2 maiden and then last time out landing the Listed Flying Scotsman Stakes at Doncaster.

The form has been massively franked since that run with second that day Wichita for trainer Aidan O'Brien has since gone on to win a Group Three contest and could help the form further if running well in the Dewhurst stakes.

Molatham could renew his rivalry with Wichita for that matter with an entry in the seven furlong Group One on Saturday but he could also be put into the Group Three Autumn Stakes over a mile.

(Credit Racing Post) The owners racing manager Angus Gold said: “It’s very much Sheikh Hamdan’s decision. The horse is in great form.

"He is just going to have a think about it during the week and see what the weather does, see what looks like running, and everything, and just give it some thought.”

Varian holds another entry in the Group Three contest with Maqtal for the same connections that looks the second string from the yard but the juvenile got off the mark nicely at Yarmouth last time out and could run a big race.

Angus Gold added: “I haven’t talked to Roger (Varian).

“It’s not the time to make snap decisions, so I can’t really say, but we’ll have a think about it and see what to do.“At this stage, Molatham is the better horse. We’ll see what we do with him first and work out what to do with the other fella from there.”
