Next Destination has been ruled out for the remainder of the season due to a setback.
A dual Grade One-winning novice hurdler last term, he finished third behind Samcro at the Cheltenham Festival.
Having gone on to win at Punchestown, hopes were high he could make his mark in the staying novice chaser division this campaign and he was around a 10-1 shot for the RSA at the Festival, but Willie Mullins has been forced to pull stumps.
“Next Destination has had a setback. It’s not serious but we’ve decided to treat it and leave him alone for the rest of this season. He’ll go novice chasing next season,” said Mullins.
