Owen's Behind on show; WINNER MACHINE.

Byline: DAVE MITCHELL

MICHAEL OWEN is searching for a club and the former England striker is also looking for a winner at Epsom when the sprinter he part-owns, BEAR BEHIND, takes in the Investec Dash.

This must be the most terrifying race of the year to ride in as Epsom has the fastest five furlongs in the country and the winner will clock around 54 seconds.

Bear Behind has been aimed at this race ever since he was touched off at Sandown on heavy ground in April.

It's all come good for him on this much faster surface as he's drawn bang on the top rail in 20 and is a frontrunner.

A couple of qualifiers from the list, BOGART and KIMBALI go to Haydock.

The first named comes out best on official ratings in his race and caught the eye on comeback at York where he travelled like the best horse until lack of a run told close home.

This one could develop into a top sprinter during the season.

Up at Musselburgh, TATLISU should be given another chance on the course form of his debut, having subsequently put up an amazing performance at York where he gave away 10 lengths at the start.

The fact he actually got into contention that day says masses for his ability and he's an exciting prospect.

MAASTRICHT caught the eye in a hot Newmarket race.

Selections: Today Epsom 3.15 Bear Behind. Haydock 3.40 Bogart, 5.15 Kimbali. Musselburgh 1.55 Tatlisu, 3.30 Maastricht. Tomorrow: Nottingham 4.20 Lovage.

Horses to follow: Bartolomeu, Bridgefield, Brundon, Bunraku, Cantal, Cape King Of Jazz, Captivator, Coquet, Gatewood, Hoyam, Kimberella, Lean On Pete, Lexington Spirit, Loving Spirit, Lucanian, Lucky Henry, Mabait, Night Celebration, Nile Knight, Nocturn, Qahriman, Red Duke, Rhamnus, Rougette, Royal Peculiar, Sajjhaa, The Fugue, Trader Jack, Uriah Heep, Utterance, Whistling Buddy, Winter's Night, Yazdi.
