Suroor given Moulton task

Godolphin have confirmed Saeed bin Suroor will have temporary control over their Moulton Paddocks yard in Newmarket following Mahmood Al Zarooni's suspension from racing.

Bin Suroor already trains for Godolphin at their Snailwell Road yard and he will also oversee the preparation of horses based at the Dubai outfit's other stables while a new permanent trainer is sought.

A statement read: "Saeed bin Suroor is taking over the training licence at Moulton Paddocks, Newmarket, on a temporary basis until a new trainer is appointed by Godolphin for that property.

"The role is in addition to Saeed bin Suroor's responsibilities for horses based at Godolphin Stables in Newmarket."

Al Zarooni was banned for eight years by the BHA in April after admitting administering anabolic steroids to 15 horses in his care.
