Horse Racing - Racing: Mujtaba to go for Lincoln glory

Mujtaba will attempt to maintain his unbeaten record in the SBK Lincoln at Doncaster next Saturday.

Trained by William Haggas, Mujtaba is a perfect three from three in his career thus far, winning a pair of novice races at Chepstow and Chester before making an impressive winning handicap debut at Redcar.

Weight not an issue for Mujtaba

The son of Dubawi will be 8lb higher on his seasonal debut, but is totally unexposed and 4/1 to to record win number four, with trainer Haggas having a remarkable record in one of Doncaster's showpiece races.

Haggas has fielded just six runners in the Lincoln since 2000, winning it an astonishing three times in that period, most recently with subsequent Group 1 winner Addeybb.

The Newmarket-based trainer also won the race in 1992 and he is on the verge of becoming the most successful trainer in Lincoln history.

Boosala, Irish Admiral and Ametis complete a four-strong team for Haggas in 2022 and he said: "I'm going to leave four in and I think they'll all get in, but Boosala is more likely to go for the Listed race, he's got a lot of weight."

Haggas hails Mujtaba potential

On Mujtaba and the Lincoln generally, Haggas added: "He's nowhere near Addeybb yet and I'm not saying he ever will be, but he could be a bit better than a handicapper if he goes the right way.

"It's a nice, valuable prestigious race to have a runner in and if we have the right type, we like to have a go at it."
