Sire De Grugy Breaks Cheltenham Hoodoo And Storms To Champion Chase Glory

Wednesday 12th March 2014

Sire De Grugy went into the Queen Mother Champion Chase with a question mark hanging over his ability around the left-handed undulations of Cheltenham, but the Gary Moore-trained raider silenced the doubters as he stormed to an emphatic six-length victory in the two-mile Championship race with a stunning display to land the honours for favourite backers.

Easy to back in the betting offices this morning, he was trimmed on course before the off and Jamie Moore opted patient tactics and skimmed the inside rail throughout and it was market rival Captain Conan who was the first to be out of contention when pulled up in the early stages.

Moore always looked confident as the 11/4 favourite travelled sweetly, but up front former winner Sizing Europe and festival veteran Somersby looked major players, but turning for home Moore scythed through those adversaries and kicked clear approaching the last fence and duly sprinted clear to land the coveted prize for the much-loved Moore family operation.
