Elgin is on course to run in the Sky Bet Dovecote
Alan King's youngster was no match for the Harry Fry-trained Neon Wolf in the Sky Bet Supreme Trial Rossington Main at Haydock, but had previously won in good style at Newcastle and Kempton.
"We hope and think we were just beaten by a very good horse," said Dan Downie, racing manager for owners Elite Racing Club.
"When we saw all the money pouring in for the winner in the morning, we went with a bit of trepidation and it certainly wasn't misplaced.
"We think Elgin ran his race, he travelled and jumped and did everything right.
"We're still thinking of going for the Dovecote at Kempton, we know that suits him, and then we'll see where we are."
