Ryan Moore to ride Hoof It in Duke Of York Stakes
JOCKEY Ryan Moore has been booked to ride the Mick Easterby-trained Hoof It in next Wednesday'sGroup 2 Duke Of York Stakes.
Hoof It was partnered by Kieren Fallon on five of his six starts last season but Easterby revealed the five-year-old, owned by Lee Westwood and Chubby Chandler, will have the assistance of three-time champion Moore on his seasonal debut at York.
"The owners asked me to get Ryan Moore," said Easterby. "He [Hoof It] will probably run but he likes good ground and it could be too soft for him. He has done all right over the winter."
Hoof It is 4-1 clear favourite with Paddy Power but he is 5-1 co-favourite alongside Bated Breath and Mayson with Ladbrokes and bet365.
Prix Imprudence fourth Restiadargent was supplemented for the 6f contest on Thursday and is rated a general 12-1 chance.
