Susan Magnier's Master of Hounds, the third-place finisher in the Oct. 23 Racing Post Trophy (Eng-I), was made the 9-2 favorite for the Nov. 6 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (gr. IIT). The one-mile Juvenile Turf kicks off the Saturday Breeders' Cup program. A field of 13 was drawn and the favorite will break from post 5.
Master of Hounds, by Kingmambo—Silk and Scarlet, by Sadler's Wells, is trained by Aidan O'Brien. He has been in the money four times in five starts and broke his maiden by six lengths before starting in the Racing Post Trophy.
Second choice at 5-1 is fellow European challenger Mantoba, who comes into the race off a victory in the Houghton Conditions Stakes at Newmarket. The won of Noverre is owned by Manton Racing Partnership and trained by Brian Meehan.
