Tom George has confirmed he will start off Grade One novice hurdle winner The Worlds End over smaller obstacles this season.

The Slad trainer will stick to his immediate reaction after the six-year-old landed the Sefton Novices' Hurdle at Aintree in April to make up for his fall at the second-last flight in the Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival, when he held every chance.

The West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby on November 4 and the Long Distance Hurdle at Newbury on December 1 are possible options for The Worlds End.

"He's going to start off over hurdles and keep our options open with him," said George.

"We might think about the race up at Wetherby. That's a possibility. If not, the next target will be Newbury with him. He's going to want proper winter, good ground.

"He was quite a weak-looking horse and he's strengthened up a lot. He was always going to. He's a young horse.

"He's had a good summer and has been back in full training since the middle of July, so he's been going for a while now."
