Gordon Elliott says Tiger Roll was in fine fettle after a gallop around the cross-country fences at Cheltenham.
The 10-year-old is hoping for another huge year as he prepares for his twin assault on The Festival and the Grand National.
Winning the Aintree showpiece for the third year in a row remains a tantalising future prospect but first is Cheltenham, where Elliott's charge is hoping for a third victory in the Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase.
Elliott revealed Tiger Roll was given a brief trip around the course on Friday under the guidance of Keith Donoghue as part of his preparation for next month and everything went well.
"He's come over for a trip away and he's had a nice school around," Elliott said in the Racing Post.
"We were very happy with him. He just jumped a few hedges, which is what we've done with him for the last couple of years now. Keith was very happy with him too."
