Big RSA Chase hope Monalee is being nursed back to health after a bad fall over Christmas.

Henry de Bromhead's inmate was "stiff and sore" after he crashed out at the 10th fences of the Neville Hotels Novice Chase.

Plans remain fluid for Monalee, but the classy thoroughbred is not short of potential targets this winter.

De Bromhead told At The Races: "There's a few nice options, a three-mile at Naas (Woodlands Park 100, January 28) and a three-mile up at Navan (Ten Up Novice Chase, February 18).

"He's been entered in the Flogas over two-five at the new Dublin Festival but we just want to see how things are."

Leopardstown next for Petit

Exciting novice chaser Petit Mouchoir is on course to return to action at Leopardstown's Dublin Racing Festival next month.
