Moore may ride Yucatan, says O'Brien


Ryan Moore could ride Yucatan in the Group One Racing Post Trophy at Doncaster on Saturday, according to trainer Aidan O'Brien.

Moore rode Capri to a three-quarter-length victory over stablemate Yucatan, under Donnacha O’Brien, in September's Group Two Beresford Stakes at the Curragh, but trainer O'Brien says Moore may swap horses for Saturday's race.

"I'm not 100 per cent sure about jockey bookings yet and we have not made any final plans but it is certainly a possibility that Ryan will ride Yucatan." the 47-year-old told the Racing Post on Wednesday.

"There was not a lot between Yucatan and Capri in the Beresford," O’Brien, who is looking for a 13th Grade One success in Britain this season, continued.

"Yucatan is progressing nicely, though. He took a big step forward from his debut to win his maiden at the Curragh at the end of August and then he took another big step forward to finish second in the Beresford.

"He has come forward with every run and I think he has progressed again since the Beresford."
