Ryan Moore hopes for success at Ripon
Yorkshire’s racing roadshow moves on to Ripon tomorrow and so too does Ryan Moore.
The former champion jockey is expected to enjoy a rewarding visit to the Garden Racecourse. Ryan teams up with Hallelujah in the CB Hutchinson Memorial Challenge Cup Fillies’ Handicap and the Newmarket raider deserves the utmost respect.
Trained by James Fanshawe, Hallelujah has run only twice in her life, once last year and once the season before – and won both times. She is not to be underestimated and is entitled to the nap vote.
Moore can also win the gottohavediamonds.com Maiden Stakes on Commend, trained by his chief employer, Sir Michael Stoute.
The £20,000 Ripon Yorkshire’s Garden Racecourse Handicap is the feature race on the card and Tim Easterby holds a strong hand with Silvery Moon.
Easterby is also worth a second look in the opening Mark Lister & Friends Supporting Wooden Spoon Maiden Stakes with Off Art, a newcomer.
The step up to a mile and a quarter should suit Edmaaj in the 4.10 race.
