Fry still debating Cheltenham options
Trainer Harry Fry is no closer to deciding which race his star youngster Neon Wolf will contest at next month's Cheltenham Festival.
The winner of an Irish point-to-point last spring, Neon Wolf made an impressive debut under Rules in a Uttoxeter bumper before making a winning start to his hurdling career at Exeter on New Year's Day.
The six-year-old maintained his unbeaten record in a trial for the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Haydock last month and could either line up in the Supreme or the longer Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle at Prestbury Park.
"He's very well and came out of that Haydock success in good order," Fry told At The Races.
"He's got the entries at Cheltenham. We're three weeks away now and we'll wait until nearer the time before committing him and making up our mind which race to go for.
"Cheltenham do a good job watering, making sure the ground is on the slow side, but we've made no secret of the fact he's a big, heavy unit and he wouldn't want it to dry out too much, which is why we've reserved committing him 100 per cent.
"We couldn't be more pleased with him and as we've seen with Thistlecrack, it's a case of getting them there. That's the hardest part."
