Davy Russell and Some Plan on their way to victory on Sunday
The Gold Cup-winning rider was reported to be "sore" after the tumble at the fourth-last fence when leading on the Tony Martin-trained 2/1 favourite in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Rated Novice Chase.
As a result, Russell, who won the Grade One Arkle Novice Chase on Some Plan at Leopardstown on Sunday, was forced miss his remaining three rides on the card.
Russell was said to have sustained a soft tissue injury to his wrist, although it was not believed to be serious.
