Overturn's next target is likely to be the Scottish Future Champions Novices' Chase at Musselburgh on February 3.

Donald McCain's 2012 Champion Hurdle runner-up has looked electric since switching to fences this season with easy victories at Sandown and Doncaster already notched up.

He was due to head back to Town Moor this weekend for the Lightning Novices' Chase but the cold weather has scuppered those plans.

McCain is now looking north of the border to Musselburgh - where better ground can usually be relied upon - with a slim possibility that the Kingmaker Novices' Chase at Warwick on February 9 could come into the equation.

"It's possible he could go to the Kingmaker but there's a race over two and a half miles at Musselburgh on their big day when they have a few Cheltenham trials," said McCain.

"It's a shame Doncaster has gone as the race looked ideal for him and he's been there before.

"There was a cracking card, not just his race, but the one thing you can't control is the weather.

"I don't have many that really need another run but Overturn would be one of them, it's getting a bit difficult now we are losing so much racing."
