The Cholmondeley trainer will give his talented performer an entry in the Grade One over two miles.
Overturn made an impressive chasing debut over the course and distance last month.
However, McCain will weigh up several factors before making a final decision on his participation.
"We'll give Overturn an entry in the Henry VIII Chase at Sandown next Saturday," said McCain.
"He's ready to go and we'll see what the ground is like.
"The only problem is Jason (Maguire) will be at Aintree for Ballabriggs and we will have plenty of other runners there, so we will have to see."
Sunday's meeting at Leicester is now subject to a 10.30am inspection after an initial check proved inconclusive.
