Trainer Alan King says Notachance is in good shape heading into Saturday's Classic Chase at Warwick.
Notachance, owned by David Sewell and Tim Leadbeater, has been showing promising signs since making his debut at Bangor-on-Dee in November 2018, finishing second behind Trio For Rio on that day.
The seven-year-old chalked up victories at Newbury and Exeter in 2019, both coming at just over three miles in distance, before landing win number three at Bangor last time out in November.
Under the guidance of Tom Cannon, Notachance produced a strong ride to win by three-and-three-quarter lengths from Captain Tommy in second, with The Two Amigos back in third.
Attention now turns to Saturday's Classic Chase at Warwick and Notachance looks a strong contender to provide King with a third victory in the race, after D'Argent and West End Rocker were his previous winners of the 3m5f contest.
King said in his Racing Post Weekender column: "Notachance has been aimed at this race since winning at Bangor in November and he's been working well after a break. We felt the Welsh Grand National was a year too soon for him and I hope there's more to come from him despite a 7lb rise in the weights."
