Min­zaal and Supremacy lead bat­tle of ju­ve­niles

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Sport Racing - By Mar­cus Army­tage

The Jud­dmonte Mid­dle Park Stakes at New­mar­ket on Satur­day is shap­ing up to be one of the best ju­ve­nile races of the sea­son.

The 10 en­tries in­clude the Gim­crack win­ner Min­zaal, the Rich­mond Stakes win­ner Supremacy, three Royal As­cot win­ners in The Lir Jet, Tac­ti­cal and Nando Par­rado, and Lucky Vega, who was an un­lucky fifth in the Na­tional Stakes re­cently.

Min­zaal, who is owned by Sheikh Ham­dan bin Mo­hammed Al Mak­toum, will bid to give Owen Bur­rows a first Group One win­ner.

“Owen’s been very pleased with him since York,” said An­gus Gold, the sheikh’s rac­ing man­ager. “I’m sure he’ll have another bit of work and if that goes well, hope­fully we’ll see him on Satur­day.”

Clive Cox, who has Supremacy in the race, also has Nando Par­rado, the 150-1 win­ner of the Coventry Stakes who franked the form when run­ner-up in the Prix Morny. He would pre­fer the De­whurst or a drop of rain for Nando Par­rado.

Miss Amulet, win­ner of the Lowther Stakes, and Dan­dalla, the Duchess of Cam­bridge Stakes win­ner, will clash in the fil­lies’ equiv­a­lent.
