William Haggas remains coy over horse some are dubbing best since Frankel

Baaeed’s compelling victory at Newbury only seeks to add to debate that he is the best miler since Frankel – but trainer William Haggas chooses to remain cool on the horse

Baaeed presented compelling evidence he is the best miler since the mighty Frankel with a routine win in the Group One Lockinge Stakes at Newbury. 

The William Haggas-trained colt, who is now unbeaten in seven career runs, had gears to spare as he eased home by three-and-a-quarter lengths ahead of Real World in the hands of jockey Jim Crowley.

Haggas said of his 4-9 favourite: ‘I would not go as far as to say he is the best horse in the world – that is the sort of thing others might say – but it was a strongish field and he did very well.’
