Trainer John Hanlon had hoped his stable star would develop into a Gold Cup contender earlier in the season but he failed to stay three miles in the Lexus at Christmas.
He then ran a sound race off top weight in a handicap before falling when last of four in the rearranged Red Mills Chase at Navan.
Hanlon said: "He was sore after his fall the last day.
"The ground was very heavy and he just couldn't act in it.
"I'm going to give him a break now, let him get over it properly.
"He'll have about eight to 10 weeks off and I might bring him back in time to get him ready for Galway and the Plate."
