Colin Tizzard says he would like to see Elegant Escape head to the Betfair Chase if he gets the heavy ground he favours.
The seven-year-old returned with a decent second to Ballyoptic in last weekend's Charlie Hall Chase at Wetherby and has options going forward.
Having won last season's Welsh National, Elegant Escape is no stranger to a scrap and the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury has been mooted.
However, Tizzard seems to favour the Betfair Chase, despite already having an entry with Lostintranslation.
The expected heavier conditions at Haydock seem to be the main source of the Milbourne Port-handler's motivation and, with his first run for the season in his legs, an outing on November 23 is an option.
"He got beaten by a race-fit horse," he said. "At one stage, it didn't look like he would finish where he did - but he stayed on beautifully.
"He might go to Haydock if it is 'Haydock heavy', now that he has had a run. A lot of ours are improving massively for a run."
