Gordon Elliott took the wraps off several of his best horses in recent days with the Triumph Hurdle hero Tiger Roll making a winning return to action at Cheltenham on Saturday. Tougher tests await the four-year-old but he could become a Champion Hurdle contender.The Elliott-trained Don Cossack also made a successful return to the fray in a Grade 3 chase at Punchestown last Thursday. A talented novice chaser, Don Cossack should have an industrious campaign at graded level.

Also worth a mention is Little King Robin who has developed into a standard bearer for the Colin Bowe yard. In recording a first blacktype success in the Listed Grabel Mares Hurdle at Punchestown, the daughter of King’s Theatre was making it six wins from her last seven starts over hurdles.
