Trainer Ruth Jefferson says Waiting Patiently is unlikely to contest this year's King George but hasn't completely ruled it out.
Waiting Patiently unseated jockey Brian Hughes during the 3m King George VI Chase last term.
Jefferson says the Kempton showpiece could be an option for the eight-year-old although she is favouring races over a shorter trip.
She told the Racing Post: "We haven't completely written it off but we didn't find out whether he stayed three miles last season and rather than chuck him in a soft-ground three-mile race and pull the guts out of him, we thought we'd maybe pull him back in trip if the ground is soft."
