Gary Moore: Triumph candidate
Gary Moore is leaning towards running Chris Pea Green in the Triumph Hurdle rather than the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival.
The winner of both of his starts over timber by an aggregate of 27 lengths, he was particularly impressive in winning the Chatteris Fen Trophy at Huntingdon last time out.
While Moore will consider the Fred Winter Handicap for his juvenile, the four-year-old championship is favourite at this stage.
"It depends what weight he gets for the Fred Winter, but I'd say he'll probably go for the Triumph," said Moore.
"He appreciates plenty of give in the ground, but it doesn't seem to stop raining at the moment."
Chris Pea Green is currently 25/1 for the JCB Triumph Hurdle with Sky Bet.
