Vaughan outlines Swnymor optionsHeadlines
Swnymor

Tim Vaughan may look for a confidence-boosting race for Swnymor after the Grade One Finale Hurdle was snatched away from him with a last-flight fall on Saturday.

The former William Haggas-trained juvenile travelled like the best horse in the race and had struck the front before clipping the final hurdle and coming down.

"Thankfully he's fine, he's got a few scrapes but he's had a little stretch this morning and he seems fine," said Vaughan.

"He lives to fight another day. Don't get me wrong, I'd have loved to have won a Grade One and I'm disappointed for the yard as you don't get too many opportunities to win them - but it's nice to know we've got a potential star on our hands.

"We'll probably look to restore his confidence somewhere.

"We had a long discussion yesterday and the options are the Juvenile Hurdle at Cheltenham (January 26), the Adonis at Kempton on Racing Plus Chase day (February 23) or the Victor Ludorum at Haydock (February 16) or we could just take him back for a little race at Newbury and get the job done.

"After that we will look towards the Triumph Hurdle. He could have one more run but he had a hard enough race on Saturday so we'll see how he is.

"The way he travelled you'd expect he'd be better suited by nice ground, he certainly handled it on the Flat, and he's a really exciting prospect."
