Last weekend's Hennessy Gold Cup winner Bobs Worth is one of 27 entries for the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown on December 28.

Trainer Nicky Henderson has mentioned the Grade One event as an option for his latest star, although he could decide to keep him at home as he prepares for Cheltenham in March.

The second and third home at Newbury, Paul Nicholls' Tidal Bay and Mouse Morris' bold-jumping First Lieutenant, have the option of re-opposing at the Dublin course.

Other exciting sorts among the entries include Jewson winner Sir Des Champs and the flamboyant Flemenstar, while last season's Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster, Across The Bay, Albertas Run, Cristal Bonus, Midnight Chase and Weird Al could make the trip across the Irish Sea.

There are plenty more interesting possible runners from the home team, such as injury-hit pair Pandorama and Weapons Amnesty plus Bog Warrior, China Rock and Hidden Cyclone while Sizing Europe has the Lexus as an alternative to the William Hill King George VI Chase.
