The Sportsman's Verdict
MORATORIUM has improved with each start in his career and got off the mark at the third time of asking in a bumper at Down Royal in May. He is a full brother to Sugar Baron, a decent staying handicap chaser, so the step up in trip on his hurdles debut looks sure to suit. Los Alamos could benefit from a switch to hurdles having proved disappointing on the Flat considering his top-class pedigree, while Kilchreest Moon looks best of the remainder on his third behind Royal Rendezvous at Galway.
