Meade big guns on target

Realt Dubh

Noel Meade intends fielding the same squad for the big races at Fairyhouse on Thursday after the abandonment of Sunday's big meeting.

The County Meath venue will stage what promises to be a terrific eight-race card following the cancellation of the weekend fixture due to snow and frost.

Meade plans to be three-handed in the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle with Dark Prospect, Perfect Smile and Prima Vista, while he will fire two shots at the Hatton's Grace through Aitmatov and Donnas Palm.

Realt Dubh will be his representative against Mikael D'Haguenet in the Drinmore Novice Chase.

Meade, out of luck in the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury on Saturday when nothing went right for Pandorama, said: "We'll be the same as we were for Thursday. We'll see what happens between now and then."
