Moore Rock solid on Table
RYAN MOORE was seen at his best as he drove Aidan O'Brien's Table Rock to win the Hastings Direct Sir Henry Cecil Stakes right on the line from Pretzel at Newmarket.
Pretzel, having his first run for John Gosden since being switched from Roger Varian, appeared to have it won over a furlong out under William Buick. However, Table Rock arrived and they flashed past the post together with Rock quickly getting the verdict by a nose at 4-1.
Coolmore's UK representative Kevin Buckley said: "He's raced on yielding at the Curragh, but there's been a lot of rain and the ground was a concern."
