Monksland shapes up for Cheltenham

Trainer Noel Meade with Monksland and Paul Carberry.

The Noel Meade-trained Monksland will bid for the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March

The six-year-old won over three miles at Leopardstown's Christmas Festival and the Castletown handler will be bidding to increase his tally of winners at Cheltenham.

"He's good at the moment and he's going straight to Cheltenham," said Meade.

The County Hurdle is a possible target for Il Fenomeno, fifth in Saturday's Boylesports.com Hurdle.

The Betfair Hurdle at Newbury in a fortnight is also a possibility.

Pandorama has been entered in the Aintree Grand National and may have a run in the the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse on Saturday 23rd February.
