The Harry Fry-trained Vukovar has been backed into 14/1 (from 25/1) with Betfred for Saturday's 888sport Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown.
The five-year-old will be making his seasonal debut after a promising novice campaign that saw him sent off at just 11/1 for the JLT Novices' Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
Betfred spokesman Andrew Griffiths said: "Vukovar is the big springer in the Tingle Creek betting into 14/1 from 25s.
"He's always been highly thought of and the money suggests he will be cherry-ripe for Saturday."
