Trainer Tom George admits he does not know whether to run The Worlds End in the Marsh Hurdle at Ascot.
The eight-year-old impressively won on his reappearance at Wetherby in early November, taking the spoils in the Grade Two bet365 Hurdle.
However, his latest run was not quite as successful as he had to settle for third in the Ladbrokes Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury.
Two years ago, he ran in the Marsh Hurdle – better known as the Long Walk race – at Ascot and finished fourth, with Sam Spinner taking the spoils.
George said: "I'm not sure where we're going yet. He is entered in Ireland as well over Christmas, so we'll see.
"We were pleased with the way he ran at Newbury. He was giving 6lb to Thistlecrack but Paisley Park beat us fair and square and how we turn the odds on him, I'm not quite sure.
"We just have to do the right thing by our horse. He seems to have come out of the race well and as he's getting older, I think he'll appreciate a bit softer ground."
