Mustashry extends Stoute record in Lockinge

Mustashry extends Stoute record in Lockinge

Mustashry won the Al Shaqab Lockinge Stakes at Newbury, giving trainer Sir Michael Stoute eight victories in the one-mile contest.

The success extends Stoute’s record in the race further as the Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum-owned six-year-old saw off pre-race favourite Laurens in the Group One showpeice.

Jockey Jim Crowley held his nerve late on as Mustashry (9/1) battled it out with Laurens after early pace-setter Ostilio faded away.

Accidental Agent ran an impressive race to claim third, half a length behind, with Ken Condon’s Irish challenger Romanised fourth and the Aidan O’Brien-trained Le Brivido fifth.
