Marcus Tregoning is thinking of giving Mohaather his seasonal debut in the Watership Down Stud Greenham Stakes at Newbury on April 13.

The son of Showcasing could clash with champion European two-year-old Too Darn Hot in the Group Three seven-furlong event, and is a course and a distance winner, having ended his juvenile campaign with victory in the Horris Hill Stakes in October.

Tregoning reports Mohaather to have wintered well and is keen to see if he can prove himself to be a realistic contender for the Qipco 2000 Guineas, for which Too Darn Hot is hot favourite in the ante-post betting.

“So far, so good. He’s had a good winter. The plan at this stage is to run in the Greenham, then we’ll see after that,” said the Whitsbury handler.

“I’m not welded to it and if things change, then they change, but at the moment that is what we are most likely to do.

“Obviously, the Greenham will be a good trial because supposedly John Gosden’s horse goes there. We may not be good enough to go for the Guineas, who knows? That’s the plan at the moment.

“The thing about the horse is he’s an early type, I think, looking at the make and shape of him. I think he’ll come together pretty quickly now.

“Hopefully, everything goes right we’ll be there and run a good race.”
