Albertas Run could bid to register his fourth course success in the Betfred Treble Odds On Lucky 15's Chase at Aintree on Saturday.
Jonjo O'Neill's talented 11-year-old last graced the winner's enclosure in the Old Roan Chase at the Merseyside track in October 2011.
He was last seen finishing third behind Finian's Rainbow in the Melling Chase at Aintree in April.
"He's getting a bit older and is carrying a bit of weight, but he won the Old Roan there on his first run last year," his jockey Tony McCoy told At The Races.
"That was over two and a half (miles) but he got the run of the race.
"Jonjo seems to be happy with him."
