Loosen My Load could next be seen in the William Hill Feltham Novices' Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.
Henry de Bromhead's six-year-old lost his unbeaten record over fences in Cheltenham's Independent Newspaper Novices' Chase but lost nothing in defeat behind Ghizao and Captain Chris. He was attempting to concede 6lb to to the front two and the County Waterford handler is now considering a step up in trip.
"We were pleased with Loosen My Load's run as he gave 6lb to the first two and the objective was to learn more about him," De Bromhead told his website, www.henrydebromheadracing.com.
"We now feel he needs more of a trip and, as such, we'll have a look at stepping him up with the Feltham at Kempton being one option to consider if Sizing Europe was to make the journey over for the King George."
