Samcro Quoted For Cheltenham Tilt After Hosing Up At Punchestown

Samcro: Gigginstown and Elliot's latest hurdling star
Samcro: Gigginstown and Elliot's latest hurdling star

Samcro was a talented performer in bumpers last year and he made a hugely impressive start to his hurdling career on debut at Punchestown this afternoon.

Gordon Elliot’s five-year-old looked totally professional on his first day at school, riding handily throughout and pulling away from his opponents with consummate ease when asked to wrap things up by Jack Kennedy.

Fellow Gigginstown-owned runner Mind’s Eye was plugging on back in second and Jack Dillinger wasn’t knocked about back in third - Ruby Walsh started easing him up once the race looked out of reach one out.

Both the second and third looked like they’ll have decent careers ahead of them but Samcro was very, very taking today and he’s already been priced up for some of the big hurdle races at the festival next March.

Gordon Elliot has found it hard to contain his excitement about this inmate and it's clear why. Providing he stays healthy for the season this talented novice stands as a must-watch whenever he runs.
