Jim Crowley: Picked up a winning spare at Newbury

Tawhid ran out an impressive winner of the Group Three Worthington's Whizz-Kidz Stakes at Newbury on Saturday.

With Jim Crowley substituting for Frankie Dettori in the saddle, the Godolphin-owned grey stretched clear to win the seven furlong contest - which is better known as the Horris Hill Stakes - by four lengths.

The field raced in two groups until merging with a quarter of a mile to run and it soon became apparent that those towards the centre of the course had the advantage.

None was travelling more easily, however, than the son of Invincible Spirit who had run out a wide-margin winner of a soft-ground Nottingham maiden on his previous outing and he left the others trailing in his wake when asked to put the race to bed.

It was a second winner on the card for Crowley who had scored in the opening maiden aboard Ralph Beckett's Secret Gesture and he was delighted to have picked up the ride: "He's a lovely horse and a nice spare to get.

"He travelled lovely. He went through the gears really nicely and did it with a bit of class.

"You never quite know when the ground is so testing but this horse clearly loved the ground.

"It's early days to say what he might do next year but he did everything right. He wouldn't mind a bit further, which is good."

Dettori missed the ride aboard Saeed Bin Suroor's youngster having been held-up in traffic.
