Favorite Moon ruled out of Old Rowley Cup

Favorite Moon will miss Friday’s bet365 Old Rowley Cup Handicap at Newmarket and run at York instead.

William Haggas’ three-year-old won by over eight lengths last time out at Haydock, forcing an 8lb rise from the handicapper.

As low as 6-1 in places for the valuable contest at Headquarters, he will instead run in the Betsafe Handicap over a mile and three-quarters on the Knavesmire on the same afternoon.

“He goes to York,” said Haggas.

“I thought the Old Rowley Cup looked a very strong race.

“It’s a race I’ve had no luck in at all, so it hasn’t been my favourite.

“It’s near enough a Group race, it’s very competitive, so we’ll go to York with him instead.”
