David Pipe will be on weather watch before deciding if Ramses De Teillee takes his chance in the BetVictor Smartcards Handicap Chase at Cheltenham.

The seven year-old ran second in last season’s Welsh Grand National National and made a winning seasonal bow at Cheltenham last month, albeit over hurdles.

Pipe said: “He will have an entry in the three-mile-three chase at Cheltenham next Saturday, and that is his next possible race.

“We want the rain to continue if we are going to go there, though.

“Last time was the easiest race he has had on his return. He ran well the year before on his seasonal return on good ground when he finished fifth in the Badger Ales Chase.

“He has taken everything fine since Cheltenham, and I wish we had a few more like him.”
