His first full season began at Market Rasen on 24 September 2005 where he won a National Hunt flat race. Shortly before Christmas he had his first start over hurdles, which he also won. However, he did not run again that season.
Early the next season he had his first race over fences. He was again victorious and, for the first time, was partenered by AP McCoy. He was beaten next time out at Cheltenham in a Novices Chase by Denman. Don't Push It was no match for 'The Tank' who won by a length despite veering dramatically left handed. A month later he returned to the same course to record another victory over fences. His next run was in February at Chepstow where he won by a huge 23 lengths. He headed to Cheltenham for the Festival (Arkle Challenge Trophy) but fell when in with a chance. The race was won by My Way de Solzen. Don't Push It then tried again at Aintree but could only beat one home, finishing fifth.

Don't Push It's retirement was announced on 10 January 2012. O'Neill explained that the twelve-year-old "had not really been sparkling and the last thing we wanted was to make him carry on doing something he was not really happy with."
