Court primed for Festival prepHeadlines
Champion Court

Champion Court is set to complete his racecourse preparations for Cheltenham in Friday's kempton.co.uk Graduation Chase.

An excellent second to Sir Des Champs in the Jewson Novices' Chase at last year's Festival, the eight-year-old has continued his good form this season and was last seen finishing an excellent fourth in the King George VI Chase.

Having seemingly failed to get home over three miles in the Boxing Day showpiece, Champion Court is set to come back in trip at Kempton before a tilt at the two-mile-five-furlong Ryanair Chase next month.

Trainer Martin Keighley said: "He'll go to Kempton. He's also in a handicap at Warwick, but the Kempton race looks ideal for him.

"Hopefully it will be a nice prep run for him before he goes to Cheltenham and hopefully he can get a win on the board, then we can go to Cheltenham full of confidence.

"I'm very happy with him at home. He schooled well yesterday and worked well this morning, so we're looking forward to Friday."

Champion Court is a best priced 10-1 for the Ryanair Chase on the Thursday of the Cheltenham Festival.
