Saeed bin Suroor and Best Solution aim for a German Group One raid
The race in their sights is the Grosser Preis von Berlin at Hoppegarten on Sunday. The Godolphin trainer won the race in 2010 with Campanologist.
Benbatl has been Bin Suroor’s flag-flyer this season but Best Solution is coming to the fore big time after his defeat of Mirage Dancer last month.
“Pat Cosgrave will ride him. This is another step up for him after he won the Group Two at Newmarket,” said Bin Suroor.
“It’s going to be tough, there are some nice German horses in there, but he has the class. It’s his favourite trip – a mile and a half – so we’ll so how he goes.’’
“The key to this horse is the ground, any rain in Germany this weekend will help him.’’
“He handled it a little bit quicker at Newmarket, but he’s definitely better when it’s soft.’’
“It was nice to see Mirage Dancer win at Goodwood, that gives us confidence.”
The winner of the race last year Dschingis Secret and Windstoss (third to Cracksman in the Coronation Cup) are among the seven runners.
