Moore to ride at Merano

Jamie Moore has confirmed that he will ride the Christian von der Recke-trained Our Hero in Sunday's Gran Premio di Merano.

Moore told "I'm really looking forward to riding Our Hero in Merano, it's always very exciting to ride in different countries - I've ridden in Germany and Belgium before - and the prize money on offer is exceptional.

He added: "I've ridden at Merano once before over hurdles, but have never ridden in a steeple chase at the course. I remember it was a stunning place with the mountains all around.

"Our Hero is a big horse who might just struggle a little with all the twists and turns if the truth be told," Moore concluded.
