Trainer Oliver Sherwood says he is looking to run Sevarano in the Ballymore Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day.
The impressive six-year-old has entered a good run of form recently, winning his last two outings.
Firstly, he took the spoils in the Ron Powell 80th Birthday Maiden Hurdle at Chepstow in October before following up that reappearance win at Newbury in the Ladbrokes Daily Odds Boosts Novices' Hurdle.
The Lambourn trainer is now set to challenge the gelding over a two-and-a-half-mile distance in the Listed prize event.
And, Sherwood admits he is keen to see how his horse can handle the undulating surface.
"I can't see Sevarano going to the Challow. He might go to Cheltenham on New Year's Day," he said.
"I'm quite keen to go to Cheltenham to see what he is like there, as he has only run over hurdles around Sandown, Newbury and Chepstow, which are tracks with two long straights.
"I want him to go up and down dale to see how he handles the track there."
