Time For Rupert remains on course for the RSA Chase at this month’s Cheltenham Festival.

Trainer Paul Webber believes that his stable star deserves to be favourite for the Grade One showpiece and he has been working with horse expert Yogi Bresiner ahead of his trip to Prestbury Park.

“All is good and his form is rock-solid - that's why he's the 5-2 favourite,” Webber explained.

"He had a little bit of jumping practice with Yogi Breisner as he hasn't had much racing and we wanted him to keep learning."

While Webber recognises that Time For Rupert is his best chance of a winner at this year’s Festival, he also believes that he could have a couple of other lively outsiders up his sleeve.

"We like the look of Edgbriar in the Byrne Group Plate and Alasi has run very well this season, getting very close to Banjaxed Girl on several occasions. She'll go for the David Nicholson. Sarando has a couple of options over two and a half miles,” he continued.
