Panther bid in doubt
Brown Panther may not be able to participate in Sunday's GAIN Irish St Leger as he has a temperature.
Joint-owned and bred by Michael Owen and trained by Tom Dascombe, the five-year-old was a close third 12 months ago and was being geared towards this event and then the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
Brown Panther has won both starts this season, most recently in the Goodwood Cup.
Owen revealed the news via Twitter, and said: "Desperate news. Just got off the phone to Tom Dascombe who informs me that Brown Panther has a temperature and hasn't eaten anything today.
"Tom and our vets will monitor him in the next few hours but his participation in Sunday's Irish St Leger looks in doubt."
