Mouse Morris is looking forward to a tilt at the Frank Ward Solicitors Arkle Novice Chase at Leopardstown with Baily Cloud.

The seven-year-old has won just twice from 10 starts over fences, but ran arguably his best race yet when fourth behind the high-class Min at Leopardstown over the festive period.

While Baily Cloud would have his work cut out to to turn the tables in a potential rematch at the Foxrock venue on January 29, Morris is keen to let his charge take his chance in the Grade One contest.

He said: "He ran a big race over Christmas and we were very happy with him.

"He's come out of it well and I'd say we'll run him in the Arkle in Leopardstown.

"We'll know a bit more about where we're going after that."
