Novellist backed to give in-form Murtagh more big race glory

The German-trained Novellist is 11-2 (from 13-2) with Coral for Sunday’s Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, following support for Johnny Murtagh’s mount today. Orfevre is the 5-2 favourite, ahead of Treve at 3-1.

“Orfevre and Treve have dominated the Arc betting since their respective trial successes, but Johnny Murtagh’s positive update on the King George winner has sparked support for his mount, with punters happy to back one of the season’s in-form big race riders,” said Coral’s David Stevens.

Closer to home, Wentworth heads Coral’s betting for Saturday’s Betfred Challenge Cup at Ascot, with Ascription, Big Johnny D and Redvers all 10-1.
