Next week may be launched his winter campaign by amy Murphys stable star Kalashnikov .
A trip to Aintree will see the six-year-old return to the spectacle of his success, a victory over Warren Greatrexs La Bague Au Roi in the Manifesto Novices Chase at April.
The performance was the third win of a year which saw him only once, when he unseated Jack Quinlan in the Arkle Trophy at Cheltenham of the gelding.
Hes in very good shape and hopefully he will run into the Old Roan, Murphy said.
Murphys long-term target for its winner is really a 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 was the run which found him unseat Quinlan.
The Ryanair is your dream, explained Murphy, speaking to this Grade One pursuit within an extended two and a half kilometers.
But obviously we are a long way off that now.
Murphy doesnt anticipate Mercian Prince to go back with the gelding undergoing a wind operation so soon, to actions.
Mercian Prince is famous, weve just tweaked his end, she said.
Hes a fantastic month off a jog, we have not got any plans at the minute as he has done no speedy work yet.
The eight-year-old handicapper contested last year to a handful of chases that were rated, picking up victories in business at Kempton and Plumpton.
Stablemate Mercian King was retired, with lasted a career-ending accident.
The eight-year-old was the very first horse to be possessed by the Thoroughbred Club, an arm of the Thoroughbred Breeders Association aimed toward young bloodstock aficionados.
Hes fine, he has just picked up an accident, explained Murphy.
Hell have three months of rehabilitation and then well decide what to do together where he will move.
