Botti has Newmarket doubts over Aljazzi

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Trainer Marco Botti has revealed that Royal Ascot winner Aljazzi could miss the Falmouth Stakes at Newmarket to race in France instead.

The five-year-old was lined up for the Group One outing on Friday, July 13 on the back of an impressive win in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes.


However, Botti is also considering a run-out on the Prix Rothschild at Deauville later in the month.


He said: “The concern is whether the Falmouth just comes a bit too soon as we’ve always made it clear she needs time between her races. She is five now, though, and is stronger than before and has taken her races better than she did at three and four.


“I would love to win my first British Group One but giving her the extra couple of weeks is not a disadvantage. On the other hand, Newmarket is nearer and she doesn’t have to travel far and quick ground will be guaranteed.”
