Jessica Harrington has decided against running Steps To Freedom at Dundalk on Friday and he will now head straight to the Supreme Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.
The six-year-old completed a hat-trick of victories over timber at Prestbury Park in November and sits towards the head of the market for the Festival curtain-raiser.
Harrington had suggested her charge would make an appearance on the all-weather this week, but said: "Everything is fine and we've just decided that we'll go straight to Cheltenham. We just thought about it and thought we'd go straight there."
