3 c Danzero (Aus) – Noble Lie (Aus), by Red Ransom (USA)
WON BTC (Doomben) 3yo C&G Maiden Hcp, 1010m, March 17. Trained by Michael Lakey (Deagon).
Half of the 10-runner field was making their debut and the betting ring suggested that Master Fibba would go well. The money was right as Master Fibba travelled strongly all the way, chiming in with his challenge halfway up the straight to quickly go clear and go the line for a comfortable win. A big, scopey colt with a fluent action, Master Fibba looks sure to leave this level of opposition well behind him. The first foal of the Eagle Farm winner Noble Lie, a half-sister to Listed winners Captiva and Adagietto, Master Fibba was catalogued for sale as a yearling at the 2008 Gold Coast Magic Million yearling sale but was withdrawn.
