Marhaba Milliar weighted to deliver under Dettori

© 2012 Daily Sport Limited

Marhaba Milliar is a progressive sort and looks the one to be on in the Qatar Handicap at Goodwood today (4.50).

This John Gosden improved in each of his three outings over 6f as a juvenile, winning his first two starts at Ascot and York in game fashion before going down by just a short-head to Naysalyer on handicap debut at Chelmsford.

He looked the tyoe that would do even better as a three-year-old and that view was confirmed when Marhaba Milliar ran on strongly to get the better of Motakhayyel on return to action at Yarmouth in June off a mark of 90.

The runner-up, to whom he was conceding 1lb, had won his previous start and went on to score next time up at Newmarket off a rating of 92.

That gives the form a solid look and suggests a 5lb rise in the weights for Marhaba Milliar may well be on the lenient side.

He also appeared to relish the step up to the 7f trip of this that day and there is undoubtedly better to come from him.

Marhaba Milliar is also three from three on the turf on fast ground.

Frankie Dettori also now partners him for the first time, so he looks to have the perfect profile for this.

Daily Sport recommended bet: 3pts win Marharba Milliar (7/2 generally available – use BOG firms)
