Dermot Weld's Cheltenham hero Silver Concorde will bid to complete a Festival double in the championship bumper at Punchestown next month.

The six-year-old powered up the famous hill to claim the Champion Bumper at Prestbury Park earlier this month under a jubilant Robbie McNamara.

Stable companion Vigil also ran well in fifth and may reappear at Fairyhouse's upcoming Easter meeting.

Weld said: "The plan is to go for the Grade One bumper in Punchestown with Silver Concorde.

"We'll look at Fairyhouse for Vigil, or there is also a race for him at Punchestown.

"One horse (Silver Concorde) wants good ground and the other likes plenty of cut."
