Vino victory joy for MooreHeadlines
Vino Griego

Gary Moore has expressed his relief at finally getting a win out of Vino Griego over fences.

The eight-year-old sprang a 25-1 surprise in the Timeform Novices' Handicap Chase at Cheltenham, a race in which he had chased home The Giant Bolster two years previously.

David Bridgwater's chaser went on to finish second in the Gold Cup last term, but Vino Griego had been beaten in his 14 subsequent races. He will now head for the Centenary Novices' Chase again, having finished fourth and eighth in the last two renewals.

"I'm pleased to get any winner but especially in a nice race and especially with him as he hadn't managed it over fences," said Moore.

"He'd had me pulling my hair out because he'd run The Giant Bolster to two lengths in the same race two years ago, yet I couldn't win a race with him. We knew he had loads of ability.

"What he needs is very soft ground, he's so much better in bad ground.

"We'll head back to the Festival now for the two-five novice chase and obviously I hope it keeps on raining for him then all those good-ground horses can stay at home!

"The handicapper has put him up 10lb and I suppose the way to look at it is at least we know he'll get in it now."
