Politologue could head to Haydock
Politologue may return to Haydock later this month in a bid to maintain his unbeaten record over fences in the Altcar Novices' Chase.
Politologue: Could head to Haydock next
The six-year-old grey made a winning start over fences at the Merseyside track in November, and backed that up in a Grade Two at Ascot last month with an exhibition round of jumping.
Champion trainer Paul Nicholls said: "Politologue might go to Haydock on the 21st for the Grade Two, but there are other options as well.
"I've not had a chance to speak to John Hales (owner) yet, but that race is a possibility, but nothing is set in stone.
"He was at the top of his game at Ascot and he is obviously exciting. One thing he does do is jump and gallop.
"I'm in no hurry with him as he is a horse for the future."
Politologue is as short as 8-1 in the ante-post lists for the JLT Novices' Chase at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
