Cogry may head to the Grand National after his victory in Friday's BetVictor Handicap Chase, according to Nigel Twiston-Davies.
The 10-year-old claimed the Grade 3 race 12 months ago, but it seemed as though a place might be the limit of his ambitious this time around as Rock The Kasbah led two out.
However, the son of King's Theatre showed all his battling qualities to rally and take it by a short head, with Philip Hobbs' charge second and West Approach back in third.
Twiston-Davies was impressed and was full of praise for Cogry, saying: "Watching the race he out-jumped the others all the way round. There is no end to him and he keeps trying."
Options are now open for the gelding but the Gloucestershire handler admits that a trip to Aintree next April is a possibility.
"The Grand National is obviously a target," he added. "He stays and jumps well, so he will be one of the entries. He is a little bit low in the weights, perhaps, but he will go up a bit.
"I don't know what else there is back here for him, but we will definitely have a look."
