Next week may be launched his winter campaign by amy Murphys stable celebrity Kalashnikov , with a shot in the Virgin Bet Monets Garden Old Roan Chase.
A trip to Aintree would visit the yield to the spectacle of his victory, a triumph over the La Bague Au Roi of Warren Greatrex from the Manifesto Novices Chase in April.
The operation was the geldings third win of a season which saw him only after, when he unseated Jack Quinlan in the Arkle Trophy.
He is in good form and hopefully he will run into the Old Roan, Murphy explained.
Murphy goal for the seven-times winner is an evasive victory in the Cheltenham Festival.
Denied by a neck when next to Summerville Boy in the 2018 Sky Bet Supreme Novices Hurdle, Kalashnikovs return to Prestbury Park has been the run that found him unseat Quinlan.
The Ryanair is your dream, said Murphy, referring to the Grade One chase over an extended two and a half kilometers.
But obviously we are a long way off that at this point.
Murphy does not anticipate Mercian Prince to return to actions so soon, together with the gelding undergoing a slight wind operation.
Mercian Prince is nicely, weve just tweaked his conclusion, she explained.
He is a fantastic month off a jog, weve not got any plans in the minute as he has done no fast work yet.
The eight-year-old handicapper contested a handful of chases that were rated year, picking up successes in company at both Kempton and Plumpton.
Stablemate Mercian King was retired, having sustained a career-ending accident.
The eight-year-old has been the first horse to be owned by the Thoroughbred Club, an arm of the Thoroughbred Breeders Association aimed at bloodstock aficionados.
