Philip Hobbs could aim two of his stable stars at the Sportingbet Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter on November 6.
Menorah, who finished third in the Racing Post Arkle Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and went on to win at Aintree, and Ryanair fourth Captain Chris are due to start their campaigns in the contest.
The Somerset trainer said: "We are looking at the Sportingbet Haldon Gold Cup for Menorah and he is very likely to start his season off there. He is in good form and seems fine at the moment.
"It's a case of seeing how he gets on at Exeter before deciding what route he will go down this season.
"Captain Chris ran in the Sportingbet Haldon Gold Cup last year and he is likely to run as well. He ran a good race when fourth in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham and it was pleasing to see him return to a bit of form."
