“We’re keeping all options open, he’s improving with every run, has a great attitude and jumped a lot better,” said Elliott. “He galloped to the line after missing the last – he’s a horse with a good future,” said Elliott.

Elliott, who saddles Zanahiyr and Quilixios in the Triumph Hurdle, who has alternative targets for Teahupoo, added: “He’s in the Boodles and Supreme Novices’ Hurdle, as well as Fairyhouse two weeks after the festival. We’ll see how he comes out of the race and make a decision.”

Alan King trained Tritonic odds were cut from 8-1 to 4-1 for the Triumph Hurdle after winning at Kempton Park: “He’s the highest class Flat horse I’ve sent jumping – his schooling was very good from the start,” said King.

“I don’t think he’ll come on much fitness-wise, but he’ll be that bit sharper for the experience.

“I certainly wouldn’t swap him for anything and am very happy with my lad. Horses like him don’t come along very often,” said King.
