Traffic Fluide triumphed in a Grade Three race at Ascot in his most recent outing last November and trainer Gary Moore will be looking to keep this runner fresh with an aim to field him in the showpiece race at the 2019 Grand National meeting at Aintree next month.
This trainer will be saddling his first runner in the Grand National and Moore believes that the nine-year-old has plenty of things in his favour.
Moore said: “We are very happy with Traffic Fluide at the moment.
“His work has been good and he has had a couple of trips away. He will have prep race over hurdles at Newbury on March 22.
“I have never trained a Grand National horse before, but for me Traffic Fluide ticks most of the right boxes.
“I have been trying to put a lot of stamina into his work. They used to say that you need a two and a half miler to win the Grand National. He won a good race over three miles last time so there is stamina there and the fact he has the pace to hold a position is important.
“I think he has a nice racing weight, particularly if the weights stay the same.
“My only real concern would be if the ground turned soft because he does like better ground.”
As things stand, Traffic Fluide is an ante-post price of 33/1 to win at Aintree on April 6th.
