Racing - Grand National '05: Moscow on mark again.

Byline: T: FRANCES CROWLEY. J: JIM CULLOTY

MOSCOW FLYER hardly broke sweat to gain back-to-back wins in Aintree's John Smith's Melling Chase yesterday - and Jessie Harrington reckons the 11-year-old can get even better.

The 4-9 favourite, brilliant winner of the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham last month, always had matters in hand under Barry Geraghty as he strode to a 16-length dismissal of Le Roi Miguel. The success means Moscow Flyer has now won all of his 19 completed starts over fences.

Harrington, (above) said: "It has taken us six years to get him to jump like that, but he is learning to relax and he was brilliant."

Jockey Barry Geraghty added: "Hopefully, run him at Punchestown - it would mean a lot to everyone if he won there."
