Owen's Brown Panther primed for Irish St Leger

A second tilt at the Irish St Leger is on the agenda for Tom Dascombe's stable star Brown Panther (pictured).

Part-owned by soon-to-be-retired footballer Michael Owen, the five-year-old was a winner at Royal Ascot in the summer of 2011 and was beaten just a quarter of a length into third in the Irish Leger at the Curragh last September.

Owen revealed: "Plans are still a little bit up in the air. He does need cut in the ground.

"We are probably looking at more of an autumn campaign.


"We'd love to nick a Group One, which would obviously do a whole lot to his value.

"The best chance of that is possibly abroad, or maybe in the Irish St Leger again."
