Star De Mohaison may return to action over hurdles at Haydock at the Betfair Chase meeting on November 22.
The injury-plagued seven-year-old, whose only run since December 2006 came over the smaller obstacles at Cheltenham on New Year’s Day, has resumed training at Paul Nicholls’ stable.
“Star De Mohaison is back in training and going well. It’s just fingers crossed,” said Barry Simpson, racing manager to owner Robert Ogden.
“We’ll probably start him off over hurdles somewhere. We might look at the brush hurdle race at Haydock on Betfair Chase day. That’s a possibility.”
Simpson also reported chasing stars Voy Por Ustedes, trained by Alan King, and Jonjo O’Neill’s Exotic Dancer to be on course for their seasonal debuts.
“Voy Por Ustedes will probably go to Aintree for the Old Roan Chase later this month,” he went on.
“Exotic Dancer might go for the same race, we are delighted with him. It’s something I’ve got to discuss with Sir Robert.”
