VIDEO: The Moores keep the National Spirit title in Sussex

Trainer Gary Moore and jockey son Josh claimed Fontwell’s richest race of the year, the totepool National Spirit Hurdle.

Camping Ground went off at 9/1 but was easily too good for all his rivals, turning the final circuit into a procession as he cantered home by 29 lengths.
