Tingle Creek winner Sire De Grugy could face Desert Orchid or The Clarence House as his trainer Gary Moore is torn between Kempton and Ascot. Despite the fact that the race wasn’t easy for the nine year old, Moore is understandably happy with the outcome at Tingle Creek.
Tingle Creek has set the bar for Sire De Grugy and now the only question fans will be asking is what’s next for the Chestnut Gelding. Now that the popular horse has shown off his current form his trainer will be making plans for the coming months.
Speaking of possibilities for the Tingle Creek winner Gary Moore stated in an interview:
“It is whether he goes for the Desert Orchid or we save him for the Clarence House. I would bring him to Ascot but will talk to Jamie and the owners. It was a tough race yesterday but he took it very well and I couldn’t be more pleased with him.”
Jamie Moore Jockeyed Sire De Grugy to success at Tingle Creek and his input is likely to have a huge influence on any decisions that are made.
Gary Moore went on to state that although he was a winner, Sire De Grugy, still has more to give. He could have ran an even better race at Tingle Creek if it wasn’t for the clash that he had at the final fence with Special Tiara:
“He can be better than he was yesterday, he wasn’t at his best. I was impressed with his jumping, we don’t normally ride him as handy as that. I know they collided together in the air but I did feel he was starting to go away again near the line.”
He went on to explain that any hindrance was felt by both horses in the incident and that Special Tiara was inconvenienced as much Sire De Grugy was. When the incident was reviewed by officials the clash was scrutinized and the stewards ruled in Sire De Grugy’s favour.
