Boston Bob could put his RSA Chase credentials on the line in the Novice Chase at Leopardstown on Saturday.

The Grade Two event over two miles and five furlongs has attracted 12 entries, with Willie Mullins' promising eight-year-old the headline act.

Boston Bob scraped home on his chasing debut at Navan, but connections will seemingly resist the urge to step him up to three miles over fences just yet.

Mullins could also run Marito and Terminal.

Jim Culloty's Lord Windermere and Noel Meade's Texas Jack both have the option, while Gordon Elliott has entered Mount Benbulben.

Canaly, Jenari and Buckers Bridge are also engaged.
