Mouse Morris was not disheartened by Smashing's first run for his yard and is aiming him at the John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase on December 11.
The seven-year-old has shown a good level of form for both of his previous trainers, Willie Mullins and Henry de Bromhead.
Making his debut for Morris in the Irish Daily Star Chase at Punchestown in October, he was beaten 30 lengths when last of six on good ground - but all of his best form have come when the mud is flying.
"The plan is to go for the John Durkan," said Morris.
"He ran OK the last day, and he's just starting to come around now."
