Just Cameron will start his season off at Cheltenham
Trained by Micky Hammond in Middleham, the nine-year-old finished second behind Un De Sceaux at the 2015 Punchestown Festival in his novice season, being beaten just three lengths.
That effort saw the handicapper assign him a mark of 149 last term and while he failed to win any of his five starts, he was not disgraced, including when sixth in the Queen Mother at Cheltenham.
"He's going to go down for the Shloer at Cheltenham," said Hammond.
"His first realistic target will be the Castleford at Wetherby over Christmas.
"He's on the same sort of mark as last year so he's going to be hard to place, but he did finish second in a valuable race at Doncaster to a very well handicapped horse (Dandridge) who nearly won the Grand Annual.
"We were a bit unlucky that Arthur Moore brought him over, really, when you see what he went on to do.
"So the Castleford is the big aim in the first half of the season and he should have a good chance."
