Gary Moore seems to have acquired another superstar over hurdles this season with Nassalam and with the rescheduling of Chepstow's Welsh National meeting being put back to Saturday it has allowed him to strengthen the Juvenile and put him back into the Grade 1 Coral Finale Juvenile Hurdle picture after being initially taken out back in December.
The gelding looks to be a very exciting recruit for the yard, being regarded as the next Goshen by many experts in the industry and on Saturday he can back those claims up when stepping up for his first taste of black type racing.
The gelding moved over to England during the Summer and was given to Gary Moore after being bought by John Stone after finishing second in a conditions hurdles event at Clairefontaine.
Since moving over to England, the son of Dream Well is unbeaten on both starts to date, having ran twice in two Juvenile Hurdle events and landing them by a combined 108 lengths, something similarly achieved by his stablemate.
Having landed his first event by 59 lengths, he stepped out at again over the same course and distance at Fontwell and managed to again be a long distanced winner.
The Grade One at Chepstow was initially the ideal next event for the four year old but was pulled out of the event when it was initially supposed to be run, but now Moore has had two more weeks with the star and he is ready to now run.

"He wasn't right at the time but he seems to be now. We'll scope him on Tuesday morning and we'll know more about whether he'll run then. He had an average scope before but we need a good clean one before we run him."
Moore is hoping that the youngster can run a blinder on Saturday and then head to the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival and go one better than stablemate Goshen and win the event and he is currently 16/1 to do so.
"He's very straightforward and is an easy horse to train," added Moore.
"He's big, strong and I have a lot of respect for him but he's got to go and do it in better races.
"The horse who was second the last day [Zellerate] was pulled up next time, so it's a good job he's beating them 59 lengths. He's done it very easily and hasn't had a smack yet so, at this stage, we just don't know a lot about him.
"I know how much I think of him but whether I'm right or wrong, time will tell."
