The Independent Online
The Elite Racing Club has warned its 6,000 members not to take the 16-1 Champion Hurdle ante-post odds available on Mysilv. The club's Matthew Budden said yesterday: "Trainer Charles Egerton, in conjunction with us, hasn't made any firm plans for her, but I can say the Champion Hurdle is very unlikely if she stays over hurdles.

"The Stayers' Hurdle is likely to be the main target. And in the newsletter to our members that went to press yesterday I said that nobody should be taking odds on the Champion Hurdle."

Mysilv failed to make the frame in the past two runnings of the Champion Hurdle despite gallant displays.
