Aljamaaheer not certain to line up at Haydock
LEADING sprinter Aljamaaheer is not certain to line up in the Group 1 Betfred Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday for which he is a 12-1 chance with the sponsors.
Trainer Roger Varian is also considering the Group 2 OLBG Park Stakes over 7f at Doncaster the following weekend for the five-year-old, who was last seen when finishing ninth in the Group 1 July Cup at Newmarket.
Varian said: "Aljamaaheer is entered at Haydock but may miss that and wait for the Park Stakes at Doncaster. A decision will be made later in the week."
Aljamaaheer has not run over further than six furlongs since last season when his biggest success was in the Group 2 Summer Mile at Ascot.
Dropped back to 6f this season, Aljamaaheer finished third in both the Abernant Stakes and Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot before his run at Newmarket.
