Energumene has suffered a leg injury

Dual Champion Chase hero Energumene is likely to be out for the season.

Trainer Willie Mullins has revealed the horse is set to miss the upcoming season because of a leg injury.

The nine-year-old, who has won 10 of his 12 appearances over fences, first tasted success at the Cheltenham Festival in 2022 and defended his Champion Chase title in imperious style earlier this year, registering a 10-length victory in the two-mile chasing feature.

He followed that up by also winning Punchestown’s version of the Champion Chase for the second year running and was widely expected to dominate the two-mile division once again over the winter.
