The latest racing news records Moore’s Masterpiece Storming to Flying Five Success

Trainer, Gary Moore, is a rare visitor to Ireland, so in hindsight the fact that he sent his Dutch Masterpiece to take on the locals in the Group 3 Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh on August 24 should have been a tip in itself.

As if that was not enough, his booking of Irish champion jockey, Joseph O’Brien, was also noteworthy, and the pair combined to produce a fine winner in a sprint contest run at a cracking gallop and won in a time more than a second below the standard.

It looked as though the 4/1 chance might have to settle for a place at best as the field hurtled down to the final furlong, but O’Brien conjured a terrific turn of foot out of the son of Dutch Art, who fairly ratted home between eventual runner-up, Hamza, and the fading Abstraction to get up in the last 75 yards to score by half-a-length.

O’Brien believes the winner could well make an impact at a higher level and he certainly appears to be improving fast judged by this latest victory which completed a hattrick of recent successes, following on from handicap wins at Chester (off a mark of 89), and at Newmarket in June on his previous outing off a mark of 98.

The key to judging the performance of Dutch Masterpiece lies in the proximity of the ultra-reliable runner-up Hamza, Kevin Ryan’s four-year-old coming from a yard in terrific form and being a horse who nearly always runs up to his mark.

The success of Moore’s charge suggests that O’Brien’s opinion about him being able to hold his own in better company could be very close to the mark; his exploits in the bigger events have already earned him plaudits from experts discussing the Cheltenham Festival 2014 at betfair. He looks a horse to follow for the rest of the season, especially when there is a little give in the ground.
