Djakadam is set for a week on the easy list after sustaining a cut on his chest when falling at Cheltenham on Saturday.

Willie Mullins' charge was sent off the 5-6 favourite for the Grade Two event in what was supposed to be his prep run for the Timico Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Festival in March.

He was still travelling well when he crashed out at the 10th fence, suffering a cut that required stitching in the process.

Mullins tweeted: "Djakadam is back home. He has a cut on his chest that required stitching and will have an easy week walking."
