Three runners today between Goodwood and Bath
Withhold is the first of our runners today and heads to Goodwood to run in the ‘ Unibet 3 Boosts A Day Goodwood Handicap’ for owner Tony Bloom. He has won some very nice races over his career and on his most recent start put in a very encouraging run, having not been as in form on a few of his previous runs to the last. Today he steps back up in trip to 2 miles 4 furlongs in a field of 20 runners. Today he is patrnered by Oisin Murphy who was also his partner on his most recent start.
Barn Owl is our second runner today and heads to Goodwood for owner Nat Rothschild to run in the ‘ TDN Australia Handicap’. He has put in two very strong performances on his last two starts when winning on his step up in trip to 1 mile 3. He was then dropped back in trip by a furlong but upped in class and finished 2nd. Today he steps back up to 1 mile 3 in a field of 12 runners with a draw of 2. James Doyle takes the ride.
Next Second heads to Bath to run in the ‘ Sky Sports Racing Sky 415 EBF Restricted Maiden Stakes’ for owners Andrew Bengough & Partners. She has had two career starts so far in which she has needed the experience. After today she will have a handicap mark and hopefully we will see some more encouraging performances from her when in handicap company. Trevor Whelan takes the ride today
