It was good to see the very talented MOJO STAR break his maiden at Newbury on Saturday. It was nerve wracking watching him go off at odds of 1/6 but he delievered in good style under David Egan and it was the perfect confidence boost ahead of his next target.
Richard said "I felt we were better off coming here and galloping and it will put him right for the Leger. It takes him a long time to get into top gear which is why the extra two furlongs will suit him at Doncaster. He's not a horse that will go 20 lengths clear regardless of the standard of the opposition. David said he breezed for half a mile. There's not many horses that would keep that gallop for as long as he does. It was a nice effort from him, and the second is no slouch."
