Keighley howls delight at the setting Moon
MARTIN Keighley has described two-time Cheltenham winner Wolf Moon as a "pleasure to train".
The nine-year-old has been retired after a successful career with the Luckley trainer during which he won five times.
He gained his two biggest wins over hurdles at Cheltenham in the 2009/10 campaign.
After winning at the Open meeting, he won again at the New Year's Day meeting.

He has been struggling in his most recent races, though, prompting the decision to call time on his career.
Keighley said: "The two wins at Cheltenham were the highlights, without a doubt.
"He's been a pleasure to train, quite straightforward, and he helped get me on the map.
"He's been retired to live with a friend of his owner (Louise Jones).
"He might try point-to-pointing, but if he doesn't take to that he'll have a home for life."
