Mouse Morris intends to be double-handed in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown after scratching First Lieutenant from the King George VI Chase at Kempton.

The trainer will have the Hennessy Gold Cup third in the Lexus on December 28, as well as China Rock, his first appearance since claiming the Punchestown Gold Cup in the spring.

"He's in great form, but we've decided to stay at home with him," said the trainer.

"Leopardstown will be as good a ground as we'll get over Christmas, so we'll go there and see what happens.

"China (Rock) will be there as well. I'm very happy with him at the moment."
