David Pipe will make a decision closer to the time on which race 2015 Champion Bumper winner Moon Racer will contest at next month's Cheltenham Festival.

The nine-year-old will be readied for an outing in either the Coral Cup or the Randox Health County Hurdle after finishing down the field in the Betfair Hurdle on his seasonal return at Newbury.

Pipe said: "Moon Racer seems to have come out of the race at Newbury well. Although he finished 11th, the handicapper has left him on the same mark. He will be entered in both the County Hurdle and the Coral Cup. We will make a decision closer to the time as to which one he will run in."
