Ruby a Sandown contenderHeadlines
Rock On Ruby

Rock On Ruby is likely to take in the Contenders Hurdle at Sandown next month en-route to defending his Champion Hurdle crown at the Cheltenham Festival.

Harry Fry's eight-year-old was far from disgraced when third in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham last month and the fledgling trainer expects his stable star to benefit plenty from the run fitness-wise.

Rock On Ruby has the Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton as a back-up plan, should his intended outing at Sandown on February 2 not come off.

"Rock On Ruby will be entered for the Contenders Hurdle and if the ground comes up good or good to soft then he'll be running there as it gives us six weeks before the Champion Hurdle," Fry said in his blog for www.stanjames.com.

"If it's still very testing or frozen off, we've got the Kingwell at Wincanton two weeks later.

"He's very much on target for one of those, he's in great form. The International run has brought him on a ton and we couldn't be happier with him."
