Alan King will work backwards from All-Weather Championships Finals day on Good Friday with Rainbow Dreamer.
The seven-year-old won a fast-track qualifier at Wolverhampton on Monday in fine style from Funny Kid, who himself landed the final of the marathon series last year.
Further behind was Richard Hannon’s Raymond Tusk, adding plenty of depth to the form, and King was over the moon with the performance.
“Hollie (Doyle) is riding well and she’s won on him a few times,” said King.
“He seems to love the all-weather, so we’ll nudge towards Good Friday now.
“We’ve got plenty of time. It’s not until April. There’s a two-miler at Kempton in February, he might go there. It would only be one run there or straight to Lingfield.”
