Kim Bailey is eyeing up a return visit to Ascot for Vinndication, in the Dave Dawes Silver Cup Handicap Chase.
The six year-old made a big impression at the Berkshire track when landing the Sodexo Gold Cup in early November, completing a hat-trick of wins at the venue.
Vinndication holds an entry in the Ladbrokes King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day, but bailey is siding more towards a run in the Listed event on the Saturday before Christmas.
Bailey said: “Vinndication has only just started back cantering again, as he had an easy week after his run at Ascot, but he appears to have come out of the race fine. The likelihood is that he will go back to Ascot in December for the big handicap chase there, but nothing has been decided yet.
“He does have an entry in the King George, but he is miles off being good enough for that. If all the top horses didn’t run for some reason in the King George, then it is a totally different ball game.”
