Riches on road to gloryHeadlines
Road To Riches has it won at the last

Road To Riches looked a smart recruit for owners Gigginstown House Stud and trainer Noel Meade when making a successful jumping debut at Punchestown.

The five-year-old, a point-to-point and bumper winner, justified his prohibitive odds of 1-6 with a cosy two-and-a-quarter-length success in the INH Stallion Owners EBF Maiden Hurdle.

He had a worthy opponent in Pride Ofthe Parish, who led to two out and stuck on well as Road To Riches showed his undoubted promise in the hands of Davy Russell.

Meade said: "He did what we hoped he would do. Davy let him roll along as he was jumping so well and he didn't want to take him back. All going well he'll go for the Grade One novice hurdle at Navan next month. He's a horse that will always want two and a half miles and further.

"We probably won't see the best of him until he goes over fences next season. I'd say he would be slightly better on better ground as he's such a lovely mover."

The Gigginstown colours were also carried to victory by the Gordon Elliott-trained Beef To The Heels (4-1), ridden by 7lb claimer Jane Mangan, in the Punchestown On TG4 At 9.20 Next Saturday Handicap Hurdle.
