Philip Hobbs' weekend plans for two of his stable stars could be dependent upon if, when and where the Peterborough Chase is rescheduled to following the abandonment of Huntingdon on Thursday.

Potential options the BHA have include either Exeter next Thursday or Haydock a week on Saturday, with the contest a target for either Wishfull Thinking or Menorah.

The Minehead handler is leaning towards running the latter at Cheltenham on Saturday in the Paul Stewart Ironspine Charity Challenge Gold Cup but nothing has been decided as yet.

"Probably Menorah [to run at Cheltenham]," Hobbs told At The Races.

"One of them will run there and one of them in the Peterborough. The venues of the Peterborough Chase and the weather might dictate which one we run where.

"The aim after last season was to try and win a race with him [Wishfull Thinking] and at least we've got that done.

"The long-term aims for Wishful Thinking and Menorah would be dictated by their next run. The Ryanair Chase is probably most likely [for Menorah]."
