Trainer Willie Mullins has confirmed nothing is wrong with Tornado Flyer despite his poor performance at Naas last weekend.
The six-year-old went into the race off the back of two wins, but he failed to deliver on Sunday afternoon.
He ended last season as one of the leading bumper performers after winning a Grade One at Punchestown but he was pulled up by jockey Ruby Walsh last week.
Connections had been expecting to find a medical issue, but Mullins insists nothing has come up on any scan.
"I don't know what happened to Tornado Flyer. We had a few horses run disappointingly and Come To Me [seventh in the same race] gave a few coughs following the race," said Mullins.
"However, nothing has shown up with Tornado Flyer and I was going to work him on Thursday but left him alone to David Casey.
"He will probably have a run shortly as he didn't have a race at Naas. I think he may have backed off the other horses early in the race and become detached, but we'll have to wait and see."
