Leopardstown winner Tammys Hill is unlikely to run at the Cheltenham Festival in March.

The Liam Lennon-trained nine-year-old was roundly chopped in the betting for the CGA Foxhunter Chase following his last-gasp defeat of On The Fringe in the Raymond Smith Memorial Hunters Chase.

But Lennon said: "He probably won't go to Cheltenham as he has run two or three times over there (England) and has never produced.

"He'll probably go handicapping instead. He'll probably go for the Ulster National (Downpatrick, March 23) now.

"I spoke to the handicapper beforehand and he said to me he would get into that race regardless of where he finished (at Leopardstown)."
