The Henry de Bromhead-trained Grade 1 winner sustained an injury on the gallops and was being assessed on Friday morning.

"He is currently in Fethard equine hospital after picking up a knock on the gallops this morning," the trainer said.

The extent of the injury remains unclear, but De Bromhead added: "At the moment, I am waiting to hear back from the vet, but there is a strong possibility that he is out for the season."

Valseur Lido began his season with a wide-margin victory in the Champion Chase at Down Royal in November before finishing fourth in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown last month.

Valseur Lido had been a general 8-1 chance for the Ryanair Chase and a 25-1 shot for the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup.
