Entered in all three of the big novice hurdles, the Barry Connell-owned gelding has already clocked up one visit to the Gloucestershire course when winning a bumper in good style at the Open meeting.
Off the mark over hurdles at Leopardstown over Christmas, Anonis returned to the same venue for a Grade Two at the end of last month.
He was moving well enough behind eventual winner Pont Alexandre until he fell at the third-last flight.
Mullins said: "He'll tell us whether he goes for Cheltenham. He had an easy week because he got a fair bang last time, but he has been back out on the gallops.
"It's getting a bit tight for another run - he'd almost want to be out next week. I'm not sure what we'll do, we'll see how he is."
