Currency could go over hurdles
Any Currency has a choice of races for his intended seasonal debut at Cheltenham on Saturday.
Any Currency wins last season's Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase at Cheltenham.
The 13-year-old holds entries in both the Randox Handicap Chase and the Pertemps Network Handicap Hurdle.
Trainer Martin Keighley reports his stable veteran to be ready to start his campaign ahead of the Glencarflas Cross Country Handicap Chase back at Cheltenham on November 11.
Any Currency was controversially disqualified from first place in the cross country event at this year's Festival following a positive post-race test for painkiller triamcinolone acetonide.
There was, however, no problem following his victory in a long-distance handicap chase over conventional fences at Cheltenham in April.
"He seems to be in really good form and I'll have a look at both those races," said the Condicote handler.
"He might run in the hurdle as his rating is a lot lower than his cross-country mark. We'll see exactly what his mark is on Tuesday.
"He's done fantastic over the summer. I know he's getting-on in age, but he doesn't show it. He's one of the keenest and freshest horses out there.
"It will be a prep race for the cross-country race in November. He's fit and well and as long as the ground is okay, he'll run."
