Cue Card is on course to make his seasonal reappearance in the Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby on October 29.
Cue Card is set to return in the Charlie Hall Chase
Victory in the West Yorkshire showpiece last autumn ignited a tremendous campaign for Colin Tizzard's stable stalwart, with the 10-year-old going on to land the Betfair Chase at Haydock and the King George VI Chase at Kempton before a costly fall in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
He bounced back to win at Aintree before suffering defeat at Punchestown and is reported in rude health following a summer break.
"Cue Card is fine and having brought him back in early last year, we thought we'd do the same this year, so he came back on July 1," said Tizzard.
"He's cantering now and will do that for six weeks or so. He's also getting two or three hours out in the paddock every day.
"He's a 10-year-old now, so we want to look after him and if we do that hopefully we can have him in the same form as he was last season.
"We'll be sticking to the same plan, hopefully starting off at Wetherby again."
