Elliott moves Samcro call back
Gordon Elliott has revealed a decision will now be made on Wednesday to see if Samcro will feature in this month's Cheltenham Festival.
The talented runner is facing a race against time to be ready for the Festival, with Elliott's charge looking to feature in the Sun Racing Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham next week.
Elliott has given Samcro a 50 per cent chance of making the Festival and has now confirmed a decision on the horse, who was struggling with a lung infection, will be made on Wednesday after some work.
"He's only 50-50 to run. He is going to work on Wednesday, and then a decision will be made," Elliott said. "He seems in good form, but I think we are running out of time.
"He'll go for the two-and-a-half-mile hurdle at Aintree if he doesn't run at Cheltenham."
