Teahupoo was cut to 10-1 from 16-1 for the Champion Hurdle and Elliott, said: “Robbie says he hated the ground – but he was able to pick up on the better ground in the straight.
“He said that he sprinted in the straight and I thought it was a good performance.
“We said we would come here today and see where we were and we will definitely go for the Champion Hurdle now.
“He’s a very deceiving horse – he doesn’t do much at home – and is very laid back. But I would say he is not a bad horse.”
