Foley's Antiques Naas Maiden Hurdle of £10,000.00 4-y-o plus

3m. 1st - £6,900.00 2nd - £1,700.00 3rd - £800.00 4th - £500.00 8 Declared Soft To Heavy (Heavy In Places) Overcast


Formscan By Gary Carson - MOSCOW CHIEF looks to have found a moderate enough contest for his jumping debut. The form of his bumper success at Tipperary got a boost when the runner-up won at Punchestown during the week and he could be a nice sort. He won a two-and-a-half mile bumper so connections obviously see him as a stayer. A Decent Excuse ran well in handicap company at Limerick last month and given his experience he could be a threat. A mark of 101 wouldn't be the highest in the context of most maiden hurdles at the track but this does look sub par and he looks should get involved. Limerick Lane has been switched to hurdles from chasing this season and didn't run too badly when third here last month. He's stepped up in trip now and could go well while On A High has looked only moderate so far but it wouldn't be a surprise if he could challenge for minor honours.
