Barry Geraghty; Won on Mossley.

Mossley confirmed himself as an exciting prospect for the Nicky Henderson stable with victory at Cheltenham in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.

A winner of a bumper and a hurdle race already this season, the four-year-old kept up his unbeaten record under a cheeky ride from Barry Geraghty.

He was still on the bridle approaching the final flight but the co-favourite got in close and gave Join Together and Teaforthree another chance.

However, Geraghty did not panic and got him on an even keel before quickening clear to score by a length and a quarter.

Henderson said: "It was big step up, he'd only had one point-to-point and he fell before we got him.

"He reminds me a lot of Burton Port, he's not very big but he's a proper little pro and he'll jump a fence one day.

"Something like the Albert Bartlett (at the Festival) or the EBF Final would be likely targets."
