Moore confident of Fluide performance

14th November 2017, 11:42 by James Mason

Trainer Gary Moore believes Traffic Fluide will handle the step up in trip in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on November 25.

Traffic Fluide produced a good performance at Aintree last time out in the 188Bet Monet's Garden Old Roan Limited Handicap Chase, shaping well to finish in fourth position behind winner Smad Place, Cloudy Dream and Oldgrangewood.

Moore's seven-year-old bay gelding is now set to jump up in trip for the upcoming meeting at Haydock and the trainer is confident there is more to come from his charge.

Writing in his Betway Insider blog, Moore said: "He should get his ideal conditions with some cut in the ground and there are only 11 of them left in at this stage. I've been really happy with him at home and he has been working very well.

"I'm not worried about the trip for him, as I think it's what he needs now, and Haydock seems the obvious place to go with him. You have to respect the likes of Sizing John and Bristol De Mai, but Traffic Fluide is a very talented horse who we haven't seen the best of yet."
