Racing: Move for Moore's Jeffell

Followers of the Arthur Moore stable seem to be playing up their winnings from Graphic Equaliser at Leopardstown last Saturday with the trainer's Jeffell the best backed horse yesterday for the Victor Chandler Chase.

The gelding, who was pulled up behind Or Royal on his last visit to Ascot, was backed in to 7-1, from 10-1, with William Hill.

Or Royal, in contrast, was eased to 5-1 from 9-2, while Mulligan moved in the same direction to 6-1 from 11-2.

Green Green Desert, the chief beneficiary from the rising of the weights, is 25-1 from 33-1 with the same firm.
