Two runners travel to Newbury
Today we have two runners travelling to Newbury.
Our first runner of the day is Barn Owl making his racecourse debut in the ‘bet365 EBF Novice Stakes’ for his owner Nat Rothschild. He is a very well bred two year old colt by Frankel and out of Group 1 winning mare Thistle bird who was trained here at Beckhampton. Today he makes his debut in a field of 15 runners with a draw of 6.
Our second runner today is Casual Reply in the ‘Each Way Extra At bet365 Handicap (Div II)’ for her owners Merry Fox Stud Ltd. She is a four year old filly by Frankel and out of a Cape Cross mare. She made her debut as a three year old and put in three promising runs. Today she makes her debut as a four year old and also first time in a handicap. Today she steps back in trip to 1 mile which should suit her going on pedigree. The field holds 11 runners and she has been given a draw of 7.
Jason Watson takes the ride on both horses.
