Solwhit not certain for Festival6th February 2013
Charles Byrnes has revealed it is "50-50 at best" stable star Solwhit will line up in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at next month's Cheltenham Festival.
Despite being sidelined for almost two years by injury, the six-time Grade One winner has returned seemingly as good as ever this winter. He ran a fine comeback race behind Bog Warrior at Punchestown in December and took another step forward to beat the talented So Young in last month's Limestone Lad Hurdle at Naas.
Solwhit is a 14-1 shot with the sponsors for the staying hurdle crown at Prestbury Park, but is far from certain to take his chance after losing weight following his latest appearance.
