Meade keen on Browne prospects

Noel Meade

Noel Meade is excited by what the future may hold for Thegreatjohnbrowne after he maintained his unbeaten record over fences at Punchestown on Sunday.

The six-year-old made an impressive start to his chasing career at the Dublin track at the end of October and had little trouble following up in the Grade Three Florida Pearl Novice Chase.

"He's taken well to jumping fences and he's a huge horse with a great cruising speed. He has a great jump in him so hopefully he'll stay right and you wouldn't know where we'll get to," Meade told At The Races.

"He's a very good-actioned horse but it was very soft at Punchestown and he handled it well, so I'm hoping he'll handle most ground."
