The champion jockey partnered Rebecca Curtis' charge in the Chepstow marathon on Saturday and was impressed by his battling qualities.
"He ran a great race. He stayed on all the way up the straight," McCoy told At The Races.
"When the other horse (Monbeg Dude) passed him, he kept fighting. He's a pretty good jumper - he won the four-miler at Cheltenham and he's a good, solid horse.
"He ran off 144 so he should have a nice weight in the National - I think it's the logical step for him. He'd have a good chance and it would be nice if he could redeem himself because he didn't put a foot wrong. He was beaten by someone who was inspired in Paul Carberry."
