Nigel Twiston-Davies remains hopeful Imperial Commander will be back in action at Cheltenham in the New Year.

The former Gold Cup winner had earlier this month been in line to make his first appearance since the blue riband of 2011 but was ruled out of the Betfair Chase with a setback.

Twiston-Davies how has his sights set on Prestbury Park at the end of January.

He said: "He's OK and will probably start road work and swimming on Monday. With a splint bone it's just a growth on a bone and you knock it off. It's not a problem, it just stops you.

"In six weeks he will hopefully start cantering and it's going to be tight again but I'm hoping to have him back for the Argento Chase at Cheltenham."
