Saviour out of Sky Bet Supreme

Dan Skelton has been forced to scratch Willow's Saviour from next month's Sky Bet Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.

The winner of The Ladbroke at Ascot in December did not make his next intended engagement in the Betfair Hurdle at Newbury after meeting with a minor setback.

Skelton tweeted: "To keep everyone informed, Willow's Saviour will not be confirmed for Cheltenham tomorrow. Injury will take longer to get over than first thought."
