Nicholls has confidence in Conti20th February 2013
Paul Nicholls believes Bobs Worth and Sir Des Champs are the ones to beat in the Betfred Cheltenham Gold Cup next month.
The champion trainer has high hopes for his blue riband contender Silviniaco Conti, who has risen right through the ranks this term, landing the Charlie Hall, beating Long Run in the Betfair Chase and enjoying a smooth third success in the Denman at Newbury.
My view is that the three novices - Bobs Worth, Silviniaco Conti and Sir Des Champs - could be the three. Long Run you can't rule out but those novices might be the ones that move forward," said Nicholls.
