The six-year-old has created a big impression in winning his last two races, the latter by nine lengths in Grade Two company at Warwick.
Sherwood had stated softer ground would see him sway towards the two-mile-five-furlong Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle but a predominantly dry forecast appears to make the longer race the favoured target.
Sherwood tweeted: "It's looking more likely that Deputy Dan will be running in the Albert Bartlett #nothingsetinstone."
