MOSCOW CHIEF is bred to be a smart jumper so connections must have been delighted to see him land a bumper at Tipperary last month and he should do even better over hurdles. He looks to have been found a decent opportunity to make a winning start as those with experience look only moderate. A Decent Excuse is definitely improving and was possibly a little unfortunate not to beat Roadtoabbeyfeale at Limerick. He looks the main danger though winning bumper and point-to-pointer Our Only Option can get into the frame and Limerick Lane should be suited by this longer trip.
