The horse in question has performed as follows over the last 15 months:
Grade 2 Novice Chase - 2nd to Silvianaco Conti
Grade 2 Novice Chase - 3rd to Bob's Worth and Cue Card
Grade 1 Hurdle - 4th to Zarkandar, Rock on Ruby and Grandouet
Grade 1 Chase - 2nd to Sprinter Sacre
Now I know I'm incredibly biased but that's one hell of a Cheltenham 2013 Who's Who.
Our superstar MAD MOOSE is back on track for the festival after his heroics at Cheltenham last month behind Sprinter Sacre.
Only raised 5 lbs by the handicapper he is back to a mark only 1 lb higher than when he finished 3rd at Cheltenham over 3m when he was still learning the game l5 months ago.
Racing Post Ratings have Moose only 2lbs behind the Pipe Hot Pot, BALLYNAGOUR but still 33/1 NRNB with Paddy Power for the Byrne Group Plate and 33s generally.
Now, I know I'm biased but..................................??
