Godolphin celebrate owners' titleHeadlines
Muharrib and Mickael Barzalona are in the clear

Godolphin clinched the Flat season owners' championship when Muharrib gave them and trainer Saeed bin Suroor a quick double in the Betfred 'The Home Of Goals Galore' Nursery at Doncaster.

Mickael Barzalona took the top weight to the front over a furlong out and the race was over as the 5-1 joint-favourite swept to victory by two lengths from fellow market leader Indignant, with Shrimpton staying on strongly to be just a head behind.

Godolphin representative Diana Cooper said: "He's a very bonny horse who has thrived all season. He'll have a nice holiday now and he's one to look forward to. He's very honest and game and gives his all every time."

On winning the owners' title, she said: "We are all over the moon. It's great for the whole team, the trainers and all Godolphin's employees in the UK."

Earlier Mar Mar (7-2) produced a decisive turn of foot two furlongs out to easily win the Betfred Cock O'The North EBF Maiden Stakes.

The Godolphin-owned filly sealed her first success in a matter of strides as she romped home by four lengths from the favourite Flashlight, with newcomer Cape Peron two lengths away third.

Cooper said: "She's a very honest filly, but she was a bit unsettled and keen last time, so we thought visors would help. She gave William (Buick) a great ride and she'll be a nice seven-furlong filly for next year."
