Verdict

ROB CONTI wasn't beaten far at Ludlow in his first hunter chase. The winner will be competing at Cheltenham and the second has won since so the form has a solid look about it and Philip Hobbs' charge will be hard to beat if anywhere near his best. Moon Over Miami will strip fitter for a run at Kelso and is still capable in this grade while Nowurhurlin is only a seven-year-old but has already won three times under Rules, though was beaten more than 40 lengths when second at Market Rasen last month. Pentiffic has his sights lowered but is starting to look a spent force nowadays.
