Morawij aiming high in Mobile Betting At Dragon Stakes at Sandown
Roger Varian’s 2-year-old juvenile, Morawij, is looking to build on his fresh good performance and blitz the opposition in the Mobile Betting At Dragon Stakes, to be held at Sandown on Friday, July 6th.
The novice, who was an easy winner on his debut at Haydock in May, finished fourth behind Reckless Abandon in the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot. It was like a blanket finish, as all the runners crossed the wire almost simultaneously.
Under Neil Callan, he failed to trouble the champion, however, it was definitely an impressive act. The 14-1 chance was unlucky to miss the third position by a head’s distance. He raced in the centre group early on and despite a not-so-impressive effort
in the middle stages, he kept himself prominent all the way through.
He tried his best to challenge the leading runners inside the final furlong, but staying on one pace cut down his chances dramatically. After a fine effort, he is full of spirit and Roger Varian is completely satisfied with his charge’s progress.
The Newmarket handler told "Morawij came out of his Ascot race very well and I was pleased with his performance there as it was only his second start."
On the other hand, David Brown expects Botanic Garden to do something special in today’s big meeting. Royal Applause’s 2-year-old son was a comfortable winner in the Lamb’s Navy Rum Maiden Stakes at Chepstow last month. The handler believes Botanic Garden
has a good chance especially after handing the slow ground quite nicely last time.
"Good to soft ground would be right for him. He's been a bit unlucky in a couple of his races this year, but he's a nice horse. He'll run a good race," Brown said ahead of the race.
Meanwhile, Sylvester Kirk is on a fact-finding mission with Star Breaker, who demonstrated a fine show over six furlongs at Salisbury last month. The Upper Lambourn trainer stated:
"It's just a case of finding out how good that Salisbury race was. I think he's OK dropping back to five (furlongs). He's in the Gimcrack at York, but it'll depend on how he does at Sandown."
