Harry Fry continues to be bullish about Rock On Ruby's prospects of a repeat triumph in the Stan James Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival next month.

The Dorset trainer is delighted with the way the reigning champion has come out of his victory over Countrywide Flame at Doncaster in a race marred by the fatal fall of Darlan.

"He's come out of the Doncaster race as well as we could have hoped for and it's taken him to the next level," Fry told www.stanjames.com.

"We've got the chance to put the finishing touches on him now.

"We've got just over three weeks and it's very much all systems go.

"So we're very confident and if it continues to dry we'll be growing more confident by the day."
