Road To Riches could step straight into Grade One company following his impressive hurdling debut at Punchestown on Sunday.

The five-year-old, owned by the Gigginstown House Stud, justified prohibitive odds of 1-6 in tremendous style with a cosy success over another promising sort in the Willie Mullins-trained Pride Of the Parish.

Trainer Noel Meade is now eyeing the Barry And Sandra Kelly Memorial Novice Hurdle at Navan next month.

"He's a really nice horse. We've run him twice and he's won twice. He's a very exciting horse and more of a chaser for next season than this," Meade told At The Races.

"So far so good, we'll probably take him to Navan for the Barry Kelly race and if that happened, he'll probably run into one of Willie's (Mullins) good ones and there's a few other nice ones might turn up.

"That will tell us a bit more if we go there and where we are going to go."
