fromthehorsesmouth.info – 94-1 accumulator – Canadian pays £573
By Andrew Atkinson
William Haggas trained Baaeed tipped by fromthehorsesmouth.info extended his unbeaten record to seven, when winning the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury on Saturday.
Jockey Jim Crowley pressed the button for Baaeed (4-9) to put in an impressive powerful turn of foot, to gain a 3 1/4 lengths win ahead of Real World (5-1), Chindit (20-1) was third.
“I’m very lucky a horse has come along like this – that was just like a piece of work to him,” said Crowley.
“He hit the front, pricked his ears – like he did in France – and he’s just very easy to deal with. He’s everything you want in a racehorse,” said Crowley.
Baaeed is 1-2 odds-on to win the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot, with the Juddmonte International at York in August a potential target.
“I’m sure there will be a time and a place to go further with him – but when he can pick up like that over a mile, it’s a serious thing. We know he’ll stay further, it’s just when.
“You’d imagine a race like the Juddmonte International would be perfect for him – but the Queen Anne is the obvious next step. It’s up to connections where they want to go,” added Crowley.
Jubilant trainer Haggas said: “There’s a bit of pressure – when all you guys keep writing nice things about him.
“He’s done it well – it was a strong field – with a Classic winner in there.”
