The two-year-old looked smart when making a winning debut at Ascot in July, giving his people confidence to throw him straight into Group 1 company in the Prix Morny at Deauville.
The son of Cape Cross performed with credit to finish fifth following a troubled passage, beaten just more than two lengths by the unbeaten Reckless Abandon.
Botti feels his youngster will be a little more street-wise for the experience and is anticipating a prominent showing at Newbury today. He said: "He's in good form and the ground is going to be fine. We're looking forward to the race and it looks a very good opportunity for him.
"He ran very well in France and has probably come on for the experience, as he was going for a Group 1 after just one run. He was still a bit green and got trapped behind the other horses and had to switch wide, so I think he will have learned from that.
"He's by Cape Cross, so we know that he will get a mile eventually, but we're not in a hurry to step him up as he has shown plenty of pace."
Also in this race is Mark Johnston's Heavy Metal, who is probably the most solid yardstick in the race, having won the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood before being narrowly beaten in York's Gimcrack Stakes.
Johnston, a Scot who trains in Yorkshire, expects his charge to run another good race, but admits giving 3lb to each of his opponents will not be easy. "You would expect him to run his race,"said Johnston.
"He had to carry a penalty on his last start and also now, which is not ideal, but he takes his racing very well. The target is the Middle Park, but who knows what the ground will do between now and then? We thought we might as well get him out while the ground is on the fast side."
Joint top-rated with Heavy Metal is Mick Channon's Cay Verde. He was behind Johnston's juvenile at Goodwood and York, but won easily at Chantilly.
David Redvers, racing manager for owners Qatar Racing, said: "He seems to be in top form and I'm glad the race looks suitable for him. We're looking forward to it.
"He seems to have got a bit of confidence from winning in France. That was in softer ground, but prior to that, we'd convinced ourselves he wanted it fast. We'll just have to watch and see, but we don't think the ground will inconvenience him."
So, Moohaajim is the choice to beat Heavy Metal.
*Luca Cumani has confirmed that Ryan Moore will partner the ante-post favourite, Mount Athos, in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington on November 6.
The five-year-old is unbeaten in three starts since joining the Newmarket trainer from David Wachman in Ireland, winning at Newmarket, York and Newbury under three different jockeys.
Jamie Spencer partnered the son of Montjeu on his seasonal return, while Kieren Fallon took over for the victory in the Silver Cup on the Knavesmire. With Fallon guiding Cumani's Afsare to finish second in the Arlington Million on the same day, Moore was on board for Mount Athos' impressive Geoffrey Freer Stakes romp.
Cumani said: "The owner [Dr Marwan Koukash] felt Ryan gave the horse a very good ride at Newbury, not that the other two didn't, but it was a career-best effort for the horse and he felt it was worth keeping that partnership.
"It was a very difficult decision as he's won three races with three different jockeys. There was also the possibility that we would be using an Australian. It was a tough decision."
Cumani is set to have two other runners in the race with Quest For Peace, winner of a Group 3 at Glorious Goodwood under Fallon, and Ibicenco.
Racing Victoria's Leigh Jordon said he was looking forward to seeing Moore ride in Melbourne. "Australia's the only box he hasn't ticked, so it's a great announcement," said Jordan. "It will be terrific to have Ryan here."
