Part-owner Carl Hinchy is eager to see what Riders Onthe Storm can do in the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at Cheltenham.
The six-year-old was acquired for £50,000 at the Goffs UK Spring Sale in May and is now trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies.
He has had a good start under his new connections, winning the Virgin Bet Handicap Chase in November.
He is now primed for a run in Saturday's race at Cheltenham and Hinchy is hopeful he can continue progressing at Prestbury Park despite a 13lb rise in weights.
He said: "Riders Onthe Storm is in good form and the plan is for him to head to Cheltenham.
"It was great to see the form from his victory at Aintree boosted when the third, Oldgrangewood, won at Newbury last week.
"We expect him to have improved plenty for his first run. Nigel's horses tend to come on from their first outing and whilst he will have to improve given his rise in the weights, we are hopeful of a big run."
