Swnymor resumed homework for trainer Tim Vaughan on Monday as he bids to get back on to the Triumph Hurdle trail.

The four-year-old was an impressive winner on his debut for the trainer at Newbury in December and looked on course to maintain his unbeaten record over hurdles when falling at the final flight of the Grade 1 Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow earlier this month.

Swnymor needed time on the sidelines after that fall but Vaughan reports that he is hopeful of getting him back ready for the Cheltenham Festival.

"He had a little problem afterwards but he is back cantering today and I will start to wind things up again with him," the trainer said.

"Ideally I'll look for a little race to get his confidence back up again and then we'll go to Cheltenham and see what we have got."

Swnymor is a 16/1 chance with Sky Bet for the Triumph Hurdle.
