Jim Crowley: “I think Huboor has a really good chance”

| 17.07.2020

Coral ambassador previews his Newbury rides on Saturday

12.30 Newbury – Jaaizah

She has had just the two runs. She ran very well last time over a mile on soft ground. She’s stepping up to a mile and a quarter and that should suit her on breeding. She will probably want better ground than the soft ground at Haydock and she gets that here. I think she has a really good chance. She has got to improve but I think she will do.

13.05 Newbury – Rhoscolyn

He has had just the one run and ran well up at Doncaster. He was a bit green and in need of the race. It was an encouraging race. Hopefully he will have improved for that race and should run well.

13.40 Newbury – Outcast

She ran at Newbury a couple of weeks ago. She ran a decent race that day and finished fifth. She looked green on the good to soft ground. She should take a step forward from that and should be competitive in this race.

14.50 Newbury – Huboor

She won twice as a two-year-old. She is a good tough sort. She ran well at Royal Ascot in the Sandringham, not beaten far, and she should have a very good chance in this race.

16:00 Newbury – Tabdeed

He is a nice horse, very low mileage. He works very well at home. He hasn’t really shown that he’s up to Group level yet. He ran well up at Newcastle and is a smashing horse.

He could run a decent race but it does look a competitive race on paper. There are some smart horses in here. Judicial, Shine So Bright and Mum’s Tipple are all decent types. So Tabdeed is going to have to step up to the plate.





Jim Crowley

Jim Crowley began his flat racing career as an amateur before switching to National Hunt racing, where he landed approximately 300 winners. He then returned to the flat to ride for sister-in-law Amanda Perrett. After years of hard work, Jim was finally rewarded when we won the 2016 Stobart Flat Jockey Championship with an incredible 148 winners. That was followed by a lucrative retained partnership with leading owner Sheikh Hamdan al-Maktoum, for whom he is the no.1 jockey.
