Silviniaco Conti: Puts himself firm in the picture for Cheltenham

Silviniaco Conti continued his rise through the ranks with a brilliant win in the Coral Hurdle.

"That was very exciting, he travelled so well - I think he could be very, very good."
- Noel Fehily Quotes of the week

Completing a big Ascot double for Paul Nicholls and Noel Fehily, he began to pour on the pressure from the turn for home and his opponents cracked.

The four-year-old was stretching his unbeaten record to five races and the 10-3 change powered clear to slam Karabak by seven lengths.

Restless Harry stayed on for third ahead of favourite Zaynar. The market leader turned in a strange display, running in snatches and never threatening to land a blow.

Fehily said: "That was very exciting, he travelled so well - I think he could be very, very good.

"He'll get further in time, but he's quick enough for two (miles) now I think."

Sky Bet introduced the winner at 14-1 for the Stan James Champion Hurdle and 10s for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle.
