Jamie Moore has two rides at Perth

Jamie Moore is looking forward to a rare trip to Britain’s most northerly course on Wednesday when he has two rides on the opening card at the 25th year of the Perth Festival which boosts just under £200,000 in prize money.

He said: “It’s in a lovely setting and I’m up for the first two days. I’ve got some nice rides and I’m travelling on from Kelso.”

Moore’s first mount in on Peter Bowen-trained Flying Eagle in the £15,000 Pentland Land Rover EBF “Future Champions” National Hunt Novices’ Hurdle (for the Perthshire Cup).

He added: “He’s a nice horse and a progressive type over hurdles. I thought he might have won on his hurdles debut when he unseated me three out at Ffos Las and then he did win a bit well there next time.

“He’s tough and Peter’s horses all seem to go well at Perth so hopefully he will too as it’s a decent little prize.”

Flying Eagle faces six improving rivals including Philip Hobbs-trained Sausalito Sunset, Tom George’s Kilbree Kid and Malcolm Jefferson’s Oscar Rock.

Sussex-based Moore also get the leg up on Bowen’s Lamboro Lad in the Aberdeen Asset Management PLC Handicap Chase (for the Scottish Memories Challenge Cup).

He said: “The decent ground should help and he’s a strong travelling type of horse. He’s been second in two long distance chases at Ffos Las and Exeter and it just depends what he finds off the bridle.”   

In a competitive race, Jane Clark saddles Ryan Mania-ridden Fiddlers Reel, who was successful in novice handicap company at last year’s Perth Festival.

The 25th anniversary of the Perth Festival, which runs until Friday, will be commemorated with the commissioning of a silver bell which will be rung during the Festival each year to signal the start of a new racing season in the grounds of Scone Palace Park.
