Meldrum Lad heads for Sandown Finale
Meldrum Lad has been one of the success-stories of this spring for Seamus, and, having clocked up his third win off the spin at Wincanton yesterday, the eight-year-old is off to Sandown for the last day of the jumps season to attempt the four-timer in the Josh Gifford Novices’ Handicap Chase.
Seamus said:”Meldrum Lad wants fast ground and goes well right-handed, so why not roll the dice again at Sandown on Saturday?
“He has not looked back since he had that soft-palate operation early in the year, and as he seems sure to have gone up by more than 7lb when the new handicap marks are released on Tuesday morning, we thought we’d put him in at Sandown, where he can run with a 7lb penalty.
“We’ve got 25 horses for the Flat and things are going well just now, so long may it continue.”
