Jockey Ryan Moore has entered a two-week quarantine period in Ireland so he will be able to ride at Irish Champions weekend at Leopardstown on Saturday week and the Curragh the following afternoon.

Moore is No 1 jockey to trainer Aidan O'Brien but COVID-19 restrictions mean he has been unable to ride in Ireland this season.

Speaking in his Betfair blog, the three-time champion jockey said: 'Irish Champions Weekend is so important that it made total sense for me to come over. It is a major meeting that you always want to be part of. It is a shame that there will be no one on track, but it is a fantastic programme of racing with top-class horses.
