Last Instalment, a hugely impressive winner of the Dr PJ Moriarty Novice Chase at Leopardstown last Sunday, will miss the remainder of the season, his trainer Phillip Fenton confirmed.
The Gigginstown House Stud owned seven year old was set to compete in the RSA Chase at the Cheltenham festival, however he will miss that engagement.
His trainer said “He’s jarred both tendons I’m afraid as is on the easy list. He won’t run again before the end of the season, but will hopefully be back next year.”
Last Instalment had been 7-1 third favourite for the RSA Chase with most firms.
