Gordon Elliott feels Don Cossack could not be in ruder health as he gears up for a likely assault on the William Hill King George VI Chase at Kempton on St. Stephen's Day.

The big Cheltenham Gold Cup hope also holds an entry two days later in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown, but connections are instead likely to head across the Irish Sea.

Don Cossack has won his last four races over fences, three of which were Grade Ones, and enjoyed a nice workout on Tuesday morning under Bryan Cooper.

"He's entered in the Lexus but more than likely the King George is the plan," said Elliott.

"He looks a picture."
