It was great to select and purchase my first horse for Harry Redknapp in the Autumn horses-in-training sale in October and even better to see him win in great style on his first start for trainer William Knight.
Moktasaab, a previous winner for Owen Burrows made his debut for us in a 20-runner Newbury handicap and finished 1 ½ lengths in front of Frontispiece with Carp Kid 4 ¼ lengths further back in 3rd. It was a very smart performance with the outcome never looking in doubt and he looks to be a lovely prospect for the season ahead. Moktasaab ran off a mark of 85 and when reassessed after his win was given a rating of 92.
Congratulations to owner Harry Redknapp, trainer William Knight and to jockey Callum Shepherd.
