Willie Mullins expects Douvan to return to the fray within the next few months.

The exceptional seven-year-old has been sidelined since the Cheltenham Festival in March when he sustained a stress fracture to his pelvis during the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Douvan has now made a full recovery, with his trainer keen to give him a run in the autumn.

The Shloer Chase at Cheltenham in November has been mentioned as a possible comeback race for the eight-time Grade One winner.

Mullins told the Irish Independent: "Douvan is in tip-top shape, I am delighted to say.

"The Hilly Way at Cork is a race we've had plenty of runners in but with it being in December we'd be inclined to look at an earlier race for his comeback run, potentially."
