KHYBER KIM looked in good heart breezing at Seven Barrows this morning ahead of his Cheltenham trial at Wincanton tomorrow.
The 11-year-old is up against Zarkander in the Kingwell Hurdle but looks to have retained much of his ability and wont be disgraced on his first run for 681 days.
FINIAN'S RAINBOW faces a tough test in the Betfair Ascot Chase but has shown every sign of improving for a wind operation since his flop at the same course last November.
He breezed stylishly and the plan is for this needed outing to act as a trial for the Ryanair Chase at the Festival.
RIVER MAIGUE also caught the eye both in his breeze and in his latest piece of stronger work and will be hard to beat in the novices' hurdle at Ascot - even though he is penalised.
TOP OF THE RANGE and GENERAL MILLER have Cheltenham on their agenda but will both be unsuited by cut in the ground in the same race at Ascot.
The former is being primed for the Martin Pipe Conditional Jockeys' Handicap Hurdle, while General Miller could go for the Coral Cup.
