Dermot Weld: Trains Vigil

Sky Bet

Dermot Weld has yet to decide whether Vigil will join stable companion Silver Concorde in next week's Weatherbys Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival.

Silver Concorde returned from almost a year and a half on the sidelines to get off the mark at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival, while Vigil won at the same track on Irish Hennessy day in early February.

While Silver Concorde is all but certain to make the trip to Prestbury Park, Vigil had a setback after his latest victory and is in a race against time to be fit for the showpiece meeting.

Weld said: "Both horses are entered and I've kind of got to make my mind up this week exactly what I'm doing.

"Silver Concorde is pretty definite to run. I would say he's a good ground horse, he's a Flat-bred horse with plenty of pace and he's a pretty definite runner.

"With regards to Vigil, I'm undecided. I had a hold-up with him after he won at Leopardstown, he was a bit sore across his back and I've been very easy on him since then. He's 50-50."
