The Co Carlow trainer will run the unbeaten five-year-old in the Grade One next Monday after being unhappy with the ground at Navan.

That race was won by Jessica Harrington's Oscar Wells after the meeting got the go-ahead following an inspection.

"I was afraid of the ground. He's a big horse -- 16.3 -- and I wasn't happy," said Hanlon. "He'll go to Leopardstown over Christmas.

"He's a lovely horse and I just couldn't take the chance on Saturday, although it was a golden opportunity for me to pick up a Grade One, but we'll have to wait."
