Apache set for Fairyhouse return

Noel Meade reports Apache Stronghold to be on course for the Bar One Racing Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse on Sunday week.

The six-year-old, who was runner-up to Vautour in the Champion Novice Hurdle at the Punchestown Festival in May, made a winning debut over fences at Down Royal three weeks ago.

"Apache Stronghold worked well this morning and all going well he'll go for the Drinmore Novice Chase," said the trainer.

Meade has the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle on the same card in mind for Rich Coast after last month's Tipperary winner had to miss an engagement recently.

"Rich Coast missed the For Auction with a bit of heat in one of his joints. The plan now is to go for the Royal Bond with him," he said.
