Trainer Venetia Williams is not ruling anything out at the minute for the seven-year-old, who continued his progression with an emphatic victory at Cheltenham on Saturday.

"It is an option for him, but I can't say anything more than that at the moment," said the Herefordshire-based handler.

"He's got an entry in the Racing Plus Chase, he's got an entry in the Gold Cup, but I don't know what the plan is yet. He's fine and we'll see nearer the time."

Katenko has won his last two chases in style and his handicap mark was raised to 158 on Tuesday.

He has also been entered for the John Smith's Grand National at Aintree in April.
