Sensulano is set to take on more experienced rivals in the MansionBet At Doncaster Silver Vase Mares’ Chase on Sunday.
The Noel Williams-trained six-year-old has continued her progression since being sent chasing, following up her facile success at Fontwell with the first Listed victory of her career at Warwick last time out.
Having pleased the Blewbury handler since that win, Sensulano remains on course to claim a second victory at the same level when taking on the likes of Lady Buttons and potentially La Bague Au Roi and Happy Diva in the extended two-and-a-half-mile prize.
Williams said: “She has been very progressive over fences this season and is still on an upward curve. It was a nice performance at Warwick and I was very pleased with how she came out of that.
“I had this race at Doncaster in the back of my mind, as it is worth £75,000 and Warwick proved she has earned the right to go there.
“It is not a novice race, but at the same time she has done enough to take on mares in open company as she jumps so well.
“If she is happy in herself we will have a go there.”
Sensulano and Lady Buttons, trained by Phil Kirby, are among 18 entries that also includes Grade One winner La Bague Au Roi, who was taken out of the King George VI Chase at the final declaration stage by trainer Warren Greatrex.
Among the other possibles in a quality list are Nicky Henderson’s Casablanca Mix, BetVictor Gold Cup scorer Happy Diva, Maire Banrigh and four from Ireland – Cabaret Queen, Kupatana, Listen Dear and Moyhenna.
