Rule The World is set to run in the Growise Champion Novice Chase at the Punchestown Festival next week.
It marks a swift return to action for the Crabbie's Grand National winner at Aintree where the Mouse Morris-trained nine-year-old won his first ever race over fences a fortnight ago.
"It's looking likely he'll run in Punchestown. He came back from Aintree in great form, so as long as he's all right between now and then we'll let him take his chance," said Morris.
"It's his last chance to run as a novice - he won't be a novice the week after - so we might as well give it a go as he's in some form at the moment.
"I think the year Mr Frisk won the National (1990) he came out and won the Whitbread (bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown) a few weeks later.
"If it doesn't happen it doesn't happen, but he ran some good races in novice company earlier in the year. He was second to No More Heroes over Christmas and he was a hell of a horse.
"If there was any doubt we wouldn't even be thinking about it."
