Meade pair in Royal Bond mix
Noel Meade has yet to finalise plans for his impressive team of novice hurdlers.
Il Fenomeno beat his stablemate Dylan Ross in a Grade Three event at Navan earlier this month, a result which the trainer admits surprised him. Both horses are possible runners in the Bar One Racing Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on December 4.
"I actually thought Dylan Ross would win on the day but there you go. I knew there wasn't much between them. I'd say Il Fenomeno will run in the Royal Bond and Dylan Ross could go there as well, but we haven't made any definite plans," said Meade.
