Who Dares Wins is being aimed at the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival.
Alan King's dual-purpose performer has not been seen since finishing third in a qualifier for the series at Kempton back in November, when he picked up an injury.
Having finished a fine third behind subsequent Irish Champion Hurdle winner Supasundae in last year's Coral Cup, connections are eager to head back to the Festival.
Owner Henry Ponsonby said: "He was third in the Coral Cup last year, but I think he'll go for the Pertemps.
"Alan thinks he has improved since his lay off and he's very good when fresh.
"He's been placed in the Chester Cup, the Coral Cup, won the Cesarewitch Trial and then the ground was too quick in the Cesarewitch and it was a bit far.
"He's had just one run over hurdles when he qualified for the Pertemps, but he picked up a little injury.
"It looked like he was going to win, but then a bit of birch from the hurdle went up into his foot. He had to be operated on at the course to get it out, it must have been painful.
"We gave him his holiday thinking he was OK, but then it blew up and it got a bit infected which is why he hasn't run.
"He's fine now and Alan says his work is of the highest quality, his only worry is going three miles without a prep run.
"The form of the Coral Cup could hardly have worked out any better."
