Mags Mullins says she will play it by ear as to whether Anonis takes up any of his Cheltenham Festival engagements.

Entered in all three of the big novice hurdles, the Barry Connell-owned gelding has already clocked up one visit to the Gloucestershire course when winning a bumper in good style at the Open meeting.

Off the mark over hurdles at Leopardstown over Christmas, Anonis returned to the same venue for a Grade Two at the end of last month.

He was moving well enough behind eventual winner Pont Alexandre until he fell at the third-last flight.

Mullins said: "He'll tell us whether he goes for Cheltenham. He had an easy week because he got a fair bang last time, but he has been back out on the gallops.

"It's getting a bit tight for another run - he'd almost want to be out next week. I'm not sure what we'll do, we'll see how he is."
