Trainer David Pipe claims Make Me A Believer can land the spoils in the Ballymore Leamington Novices' Hurdle at Warwick on Saturday.
The six-year-old has won two races so far in his short career, with his last success coming at Cheltenham in December.
His other victory came at Chepstow, but Pipe's stable is in good form, with the Pond House handler enjoying a solid season so far.
Main Fact has won at Haydock, Vieux Lion Rouge won the Becher Chase at Aintree, while Adagio claimed gold in the Grade One Finale Juvenile Hurdle at Chepstow last weekend.
Make Me A Believer will step up in trip and class for this weekend's race at Warwick, with Oscar Elite, Adrimel and Jay Bee Why all likely to run big races on Saturday.
Despite the fresh challenge, Pipe expects his charge to go close before enjoying a successful chasing career later down the line.
He said: "He's a horse we like, and it was a good performance at Cheltenham last time.
"We're stepping him up in trip, and hopefully he can run a good race.
"We're hoping that he'll develop into a nice three-mile chaser, and this is a nice stepping-stone for this season anyway."
