Realt in Fortria frameHeadlines
Realt Dubh

Noel Meade is giving "strong consideration" to running Realt Dubh in Sunday's Irish Form Book Fortria Chase at Navan.

The eight-year-old looked likely to be involved in the finish of the Champion Chase at Down Royal last week before he collided in mid-air with First Lieutenant at the second-last fence.

While Meade has reservations about whether he would have stayed the three-mile trip, he is not too concerned about the drop to the minimum distance

"I haven't ruled it in and I haven't ruled it out," he told At The Races.

"I know it's very quick coming from Saturday to the following Sunday but it's a Grade Two race and we might have a shot at it.

"Flemenstar will be having his first run of the season but I know he'll be very hard to beat any other time, so first time might be the time to beat him.

"My horse came out of the race very well. I suppose the bump knocked the stuffing out of him. Having said that, both Paul (Carberry) and myself feel that he doesn't get three miles. His optimum trip is probably two-miles-two.

"We're certainly giving it strong consideration."
