Melodic Rendezvous: Set to be tested
Jeremy Scott is keen to give his exciting prospect Melodic Rendezvous the chance to prove himself in a competitive handicap hurdle before firming up plans for the winter campaign.
The Somerset handler would like to exploit the seven-year-old's hurdles mark of 150 before deciding whether to send him novice chasing.
"Melodic Rendezvous is rated 150, so if he's as good as we hope, he'd be handicapped quite well," said Scott.
"He'll have to start off in a big handicap and if that doesn't work, we've got novice chasing as an option."
Melodic Rendezvous looked a bright light last winter when chalking up a hat-trick of victories, including the Grade One 32Red Hurdle Novices' Hurdle at Sandown in January.
However, his season came to a premature end when he was forced to miss the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival because of a bad scope.
