Last season's Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up The Giant Bolster will not run in the Argento Chase at the same track on Saturday.

David Bridgwater's charge disappointed last time out in the King George VI Chase at Kempton but was supposedly due to head back to the scene of his career-best performance this weekend.

However, his owner Simon Hunt said that the Betfair Denman Chase at Newbury in February, and a possible clash with Long Run, is now on the cards.

Hunt tweeted: "The Giant Bolster skips the Argento Saturday, will prep for the Denman at Newbury, want to have him spot-on for another crack at the Gold Cup."
