The trainer reports the Cheltenham Festival winner to have sparkled in his only schooling session over the bigger obstacles and is looking to let him strut his stuff in public.
"He'll turn out at Huntingdon, probably," Pauling told At The Races.
"We schooled him once and he was so good we just left it at that. We are very pleased with him.
"He won the Neptune over two and a half (miles) so there's no need to go three quite yet. We might look at three towards Christmas time, but we'll certainly start off in a couple of two-and-a-half-mile races and see where we find ourselves."
