Exciting novice chaser Australia Day is on course to return to action at Aintree next month.
The bold-jumping nine-year-old has been sidelined since sustaining a leg injury when winning at Huntingdon back in November.
He had previously won by 51 lengths at Kempton while his chasing bow was marked by his headstrong manner, eventually finishing second after pulling far too hard.
“He’s back in with us now and cantering away. He just sustained a little hairline fracture to his right hock at Huntingdon,” said trainer Paul Webber.
“He’s back in good form now though, cantering, and Aintree is still the target.”
