The multiple Grade One winner has looked as good as ever in winning his two starts this season and the Dial-A-Bet Chase is one of three possible options for him next week, the other two being the Lexus Chase and the King George VI Chase.
Trainer Henry de Bromhead revealed earlier this week his stable star was more likely to stay at home rather than travel to Kempton for the King George.
If he does line up in the Dial-A-Bet Chase over two miles he could face old rivals Big Zeb and Forpadydeplasterer.

Edgardo Sol, trained by British champion Paul Nicholls, is the sole overseas contender.
