Nigel Twiston-Davies' Al Dancer is in line for the Betfair Hurdle and previous winners Splash Of Ginge and Ballyandy could also run.
Al Dancer is unbeaten over obstacles and has won on his three starts so far this season at Carlisle, Ffos Las and Cheltenham.
The Betfair Hurdle at Newbury, which takes place on February 9, is a race Twiston-Davies has won twice in the last five years when Splash Of Ginge (2014) and Ballyandy (2017) came home, and all three of his charges could feature next month,
Twiston Davies said: "We do try to have runners in the Betfair Hurdle as it is a nice race to win. Al Dancer is being aimed at the race. It's become a good race for horses that have not quite been caught (by the handicapper).
"John Neild wanted me to enter Splash of Ginge. If it became very soft he could run and we could possibly run Ballyandy as well, so we could have two of our former winners there."
