One of the feature events at Newmarket on Saturday is the Group One Middle Park Stakes over six furlongs and Minzaal for Owen Burrows looks an outstanding juvenile.
Minzaal has been electric this term, having landed the Group Two Gimcrack Stakes last time out at York's Ebor meeting.
He looked to be a rising star for the Owen Burrows yard having made his debut at Ascot in a classy maiden and finishing fourth.He came on massively for that run and cruised to victory in a Class 5 event at Salisbury, winning by just under four lengths but never coming off the bridle.
In what looked a decent field of juveniles in the Gimcrack, he again travelled strongly into the six furlong event and when Crowley went for the whip he responded in kind and pulled away from the field to take his first group contest of his career.
He holds some of the stand out form in the race and could turn out to be a frequent black type winner in the making.
