Fine China ready to rock

Mouse Morris could not be happier with China Rock ahead of his tilt at the Champion Chase at Down Royal on Saturday.

The Presenting gelding is unbeaten in two starts this season, most recently getting the better of Sizing Europe at Punchestown in impressive style.

The latter will reoppose this weekend with race fitness now on his side, while dual Cheltenham Gold Cup hero Kauto Star is also set to line up.

"He's in good fettle and everything being equal he'll take his chance," said Morris.

"Kauto Star is in there and Sizing Europe again but we're very happy with our horse at the moment.

"They're giving the ground as yielding at the moment, which should be fine, and we can see where we're going after the race."
