Moscow Flyer to face four rivals


Moscow Flyer faces just four rivals as he aims to return to winning ways in the Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown tomorrow.

The 11-year-old took this Grade One event in 2002 and 2003 and has also won the Queen Mother Champion Chase twice at Cheltenham.

He has, however, been beaten in his last two races, most recently by Central House at Navan six weeks ago.

Jessica Harrington's stable star missed the Tingle Creek Trophy at Sandown earlier this month because he scoped dirty, but pleased connections in a workout at the Curragh on Thursday.

Central House, who had three and a half lengths to spare over Moscow Flyer, reopposes and a small but select field is completed by the Mouse Morris-trained Fota Island, Michael Hourigan's Hi Cloy and Mariah Rollins from Pat Fahy's yard.
