Masar On The Road To Recovery

Masar On The Road To Recovery

Masar is on the road to recovery, following the injury that kept him out for the remainder of the flat season.

He beat odds-on favourite Saxon Warrior in the Derby back in June, at odds of 16-1, for Godolphin's first success in the Epsom Classic.

The star three-year-old - who also rewarded trainer Charlie Appleby with his first Classic, then picked up an injury a week before he was on course for the Coral Eclipse at Sandown.

Godolphin have confirmed they want Masar to compete again next year, with Epsom's Group One Coronation Cup a target.

However, we could expect an even bigger clash later in the year, should Masar go down the Arc route, where he could line-up with John Gosden's wonderfilly - Enable, who was confirmed last week to go back into training as a 5yo.

She will be in search of history, as she bids to become the first horse to win three Arc's.

Masar could serve it up to her, should he regather his top form, which also saw him win the Craven Stakes at Newmarket last April in some style.

He will be campaigned over the winter in Dubai - although he will not run, it will be used to regather his fitness and sharpness. As a result, he will start the new British season in May, fresh as a daisy.
