Meade happy with form of his team
01 Mar 2015 15:03
Noel Meade could not be happier with the small but select string of horses he is preparing to send to the Cheltenham Festival in a little over a week's time.
-
Leading Cheltenham Gold Cup contender Road To Riches is the headline act in a squad that also includes JLT Novices' Chase hope Apache Stronghold.
-
The Gigginstown House Stud-owned pair of Very Wood and Wounded Warrior are likely to be split up, with one heading for the RSA Chase and the other lining up in the four-mile National Hunt Chase.
-
Snow Falcon is an outsider for one of the novice hurdles and Ned Buntline is considered a major player in the Grand Annual, having filled the runner-up spot in the same race 12 months ago.
-
Meade said: "I think I have them in great form. We're very happy with them. They seem to be bouncing and in good shape.
-
"We'll do the real serious bits of work next week then we'll pull the hammer back on the gun and see what happens.
-
"I'll probably have six or seven going. There is Road To Riches, Apache Stronghold, Very Wood, Wounded Warrior, Ned Buntline and Snow Falcon.
-
"Ipsos Du Berlais will also run in the cross country while Waxies Dargle and Couleur France could go."
