Monksland: Unlikely to run at Cheltenham

Sky Bet

Monksland is highly unlikely to take his chance in the Ladbrokes World Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

Noel Meade's six-year-old won the woodiesdiy.com Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown in December and was as short as 5/1 to win the day three feature.

But Meade told skysports.com: "He's highly unilkely to run in the World Hurdle. He had a setback yesterday, it's not career-threatening and I wouldn't rule him out for the season.

"I'm not 100 per cent sure what it is myself yet but it is highly unlikely he'll run at Cheltenham."
