Tom Hogan says connections will “evaluate the situation” with Gordon Lord Byron after Saturday’s defeat in the Czech Republic. Gordon Lord Byron is without a win in 2018 and came in fifth in the Velka Chuchle in Prague over the weekend.
The 10-year-old’s last win came in May last year and trainer Hogan is in no rush to send the multiple Group One winner back out.
“He’s back home in Tipperary and seems OK,” said Hogan.
“The ground was a bit loose on top and he just couldn’t get any real traction on it.
“It was an experience. The people there were very friendly and the hospitality was good.
“I think he still made about £4,000 for finishing fifth and he’s earned money in every country he’s visited.
“We’ll evaluate the situation and see how he is in the next couple of days.”
