The Tullow Tank will have his next run in the Deloitte Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown on February 9 before heading to Cheltenham.

Philip Fenton's six-year-old has won his last four races, including two Grade Ones in December, in the style of a rapidly-improving horse.

The Tullow Tank will now aim for a top-level hat-trick next month.

"The Deloitte will be the next stop for him," said Fenton, who won the race with Dunguib in 2010.

"I thought he was very impressive the other day. The further they went the more impressive he became.

"He was tapped a little for toe, but that's just the way he races. When they crossed the line he looked like he could go round again.

"Danny Mullins deserves a lot of credit because he's not an easy ride but he gets on very well with him."

Fenton enjoyed a good Christmas with a victory for another nice prospect, Value At Risk, who won for the second time but will only be seen fleetingly this season.

"He's just a chaser in the making so we won't overdo him this year," Fenton told At The Races.

"He's only five and it's not set in stone what we'll do next. He will either run at Cheltenham, Punchestown or Fairyhouse but it will only be one of those and he probably won't run before then, either."
