Crystal Caps Memorable Day For Moore

Crystal Zvezda topped an incredible day for Ryan Moore by winning the Haras De Bouquetot Fillies’ Trial at Newbury, Moore’s fifth win on the card. The winner has been slashed for the Investec Oaks by William Hill to a price of 7-1 from 25-1. Initially Hills offered 10-1 but that was swiftly taken up by eagle-eyed punters.


Moore scored a little under a 1962/1 five-timer – an incredible return on a single day.


“Moore is a brilliant jockey and all the punters who backed him will be toasting their success all weekend,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
