Dorset trained Rock On Ruby, the former Champion Hurdler, is on course to contest the Arkle Trophy at the Cheltenham Festival next month.

Harry Fry's horse won easily in a novice chase at Doncaster this afternoon in what was only his second competitive race over fences.

The horse's pedigree had frightened off all but one opponent before the big race and he then put in an almost faultless round of jumping according to jockey Noel Fehily.

He's being aimed at the Arkle Chase (effectively the novice chaser's champion race) on day 1 of the festival but the race will be his first test against other top contenders for the title.
