Master Noverre suited by Champagne trip
CONNECTIONS of Master Noverre believes a step up in trip will bring out the best in their colt in the Group 2 Keepmoat Champagne Stakes at Doncaster.
Victory on his first two outings booked him a place in the line-up for the Gimcrack Stakes at Newmarket and he emerged with plenty of credit to finish second to Shaweel.
He will run over 7f for the first time at Doncaster and Robin O'Ryan, assistant to trainer Richard Fahey, believes this should bring about further improvement.
"He ran a massive race in the Gimcrack and he has probably been crying out for this extra furlong," said O'Ryan.
"He took the Newmarket race very well and seems in good form so we are expecting a big run on Saturday.
"Hopefully over this trip we will find out how good he really is."
