Meade: On target with Fully Funded at Navan

Fully Funded ran his rivals into the ground from the front in the Friends of Navan 'Monksfield' Novice Hurdle.

Noel Meade's cbarged looked in trouble as Ballyburke ranged alongside at the second-last but found extra for Davy Condon to pull away and stay on for a four-and-a-half-length victory.

Shrewd purchase

"We bought him at the Newmarket Sales, having previously been rated 98, and something of a nearly horse, on the Flat in France," said Meade.

"He ran a good race on his first run for us but, like a lot of French breds, then went back and disappointed before then winning at Wexford.

"I fancied him today and told the lads (More The Merrier Syndicate) that he'd win. He may come back for the Grade One Navan Novice Hurdle here next - he can improve from this win."
