Captain Cee Bee could start the winter campaign with a run in the Poplar Square Chase at Naas on Saturday week.
Trainer Eddie Harty is considering the Grade Three contest for JP McManus' smart gelding, who signed off in the spring with victory in the Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown.
"The Poplar Square is an ideal race to start him off, being over two miles and for second season novices," said Harty.
"He's in good form but will need some rain to go there. Hopefully we will get some in the next week."
