Two runners today split between Nottingham and Kempton
Today Young Merlin runs at Nottingham in the ‘Star Sports Owners Club £20K Guarantee Handicap’ for owners Daniel Macauliffe & Anoj Don. He steps back up in trip to 2 miles which we know he gets. The ground is currently being called good which is also a positive for him and hopefully the step back to Class 4 will be more suited to him. James Doyle takes the ride.
Barn Owl runs at Kempton in the ‘Unibet/British Stallion Studs EBF Novice Stakes’ for owner Nat Rothschild. He made his debut at Newbury on the 18th July in what has turned out to be a competetive novice. He was very unlucky on debut as he was running a nice race until just over a furlong from home he was squeezed out causing him to loose his position and momentum. Today he runs in a competetive field of 11 runners with a draw of 1. Jason Watson takes the ride.
