Meehan sets lofty targets for exciting Mujazif

BRIAN MEEHAN is keeping his fingers crossed Mujazif, a Newmarket maiden winner at the back end of last season, can develop into a smart performer capable of mixing it with the best of the Classic generation.

The Shamardal colt created a lasting impression with a dominant display on the Rowley Mile last October, having finished a promising fifth at the track on debut a month earlier.

With Meehan describing Mujazif's recent work as "the best I've seen from him", the three-year-old could to make his seasonal reappearance at Sandown on Friday.

Quoted in a stable tour for Tuesday's Racing & Football Outlook, Meehan said: "I've got one of the nicest set of three-year-olds I've had for several seasons and this colt is right up there with them."

"He's not far off a run and I hope to find a conditions race for him this month. If all goes well I would like to think of him as a French Guineas horse, but it could be that we wait for Royal Ascot. He's a proper horse."

Reflecting on his artillery for the season, Meehan added: "We have some serious potential in the yard.

"I'm really looking forward to this season as I genuinely believe we have some proper horses to go to war with this summer."
