Champion Court: King George VI target
Champion Court is on course to make his seasonal reappearance at Kempton next month as a prep run for the William Hill King George VI Chase there on Boxing Day.
Trainer Martin Keighley reports his stable star to be working nicely ahead of his intended return to action.
"He goes to Kempton on November 5 for the graduation chase," said the Condicote-based handler.
"The plan is then to go for the King George back there on Boxing Day.
"He's in top form. He schooled this morning and jumped very well. We were delighted with him."
The seven-year-old had a fine first season over the bigger obstacles, winning twice and finishing second in Grade Two novice events at the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals.
