O'Leary reiterates Samcro's Cheltenham doubtsPosted on Wednesday 9th January 2019 @ 09.53

Samcro remains a big doubt to feature in the Cheltenham Festival but will be kept in for the time being, according to Michael O'Leary.

O'Leary, who is racing manager for owners Gigginstown, has been scratching his head at the demise of the Gordon Elliott-trained six-year-old after he suffered a third defeat this season when dropping back to fifth in the Ryanair Hurdle at Leopardstown over Christmas.

Samcro underwent veterinary tests which showed up nothing serious to leave connections at a loss to explain his decline in form.

And, while Samcro will remain in the running for the Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham in March, O'Leary reiterated his doubts that he will be involved.

He said: "He’ll be kept in the Champion Hurdle in case things go real well. But we're looking at the longer picture.

"He is very, very, very doubtful for Cheltenham. He won't be rushed. He'll come back in his own sweet time and if he doesn’t this season, he'll be let off. He was always going to go chasing next season regardless."
