The 2013 winner Cue Card has been ruled out of the Ryanair Chase at the Cheltenham Festival on 12 March.

Trainer Colin Tizzard said the nine-year-old suffered a late setback which will rule him out for the second year running.

"He'll miss Cheltenham but he should be OK for Aintree [in April]," said the Somerset trainer.

Don Cossack, trained in Ireland by Gordon Elliott, is the 3-1 favourite to win the two mile, five furlong contest.
