Sandy Thomson will resist the urge to run Seeyouatmidnight again this spring following his honourable effort in defeat at Aintree on Friday.

The Berwickshire-based handler will give the popular six-year-old a break before he returns next term for a novice chasing campaign.

Seeyouatmidnight's winning sequence over hurdles came to an end in the Grade One Sefton Novices' Hurdle when he was third behind Beat That.

Thomson said: "He was quite buzzed up on the way down so I was delighted with the run.

"It was a huge learning curve for him, but it's all about the future now. You can never say never, but that should be that for the season.

"Perth will probably come too quickly for him and I don't want to travel too far again at this stage.

"The plan is to put him away and go novice chasing."
