Jim Crowley: ‘Akmaam is a horse Brian Meehan likes a lot.’
Coral ambassador Jim Crowley previews his rides on the final day of Craven Meeting at Newmarket
Our man Jim Crowley previews his ride on Akmaam in the Craven Stakes on Thursday.
It’s a big shout to run here. The Craven is a good race. He won first time out at Ascot last year and then ran a nice race in the Autumn stakes at Newmarket. I felt the ground was plenty soft enough for him that day.
He’s by a great stallion Wootton Bassett. I’m looking forward to riding him. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to get down and ride him in work yet this year.
He’s a horse that Brian Meehan likes a lot. We’ll find out how good he is. He could make up into a Guineas horse, or he could be a Jersey type horse.
