IT has been a good week for two Irish jockeys who have just taken the leap across the Irish Sea, to take up high-profile associations with British-based trainers.

On Saturday, Jonathan Moore rode Irish Cavalier to victory in the Grade 2 Bet365 Charlie Hall Chase for his boss Rebecca Curtis. It was a fine ride by the young rider, he got his horse into a nice even rhythm from early, he got him travelling down the back straight, and he was strong and balanced over the last three fences, getting him home from Menorah and Cue Card.
