Silver Concorde set for Cheltenham

19th December 2017, 09:58 by Craig Smithson

Keith Dalgleish has hinted that Silver Concorde could be in line for the Cheltenham Festival following his win at Musselburgh.

Dalgleish appears to have given the nine-year-old renewed vigour since taking him to Scotland and his 12-length success in the Jump To It And Join Racing UK Novices' Hurdle was the second successive win since making the move in October.

Dalgleish, who won the 2014 Champion Bumper for former handler Dermot Weld, said: "He was quite impressive again and he is definitely something to look forward to stepping up in class.

"I suppose he does look a bargain now. It just depends now what happens when we step him up in class. Only time will tell how good he is."

He added: "It's nice having horses like him. Obviously we are not surprised what he is doing with his past form.

"I will speak to the owner and they are hoping to go to Cheltenham for the Ballymore. I think two-and-a-half miles will be his trip over hurdles.

"We will see how he comes out of this, but there is nothing set in stone."
