Brown takes Monksfield honoursHeadlines
Busty Brown (green and yellow silks) under jockey Paul Carberry jumps the last to win the Irish Form Book 'Monksfield' Novice Hurdle at Navan

Local trainer Noel Meade gained some small consolation for the loss of top-class performer Go Native on Friday when Busty Brown (5-1) lifted the Irish Form Book 'Monksfield' Novice Hurdle at Navan.

With visibility poor, racegoers' view of the Grade Two was restricted but when the horses came back into view they saw Paul Carberry bring Busty Brown through to lead at the final flight.

The six-year-old battled on well to beat Seafood with Bonisland third.

Meade said: "It is a game of ups and downs. It tears the heart out of you. It was an unbelievable thing what happened the other day (when Go Native died).

"This fellow is improving. He probably won have won at Cork in another stride or two. I was worried if he'd go on the ground, but the trip couldn't be far enough for him. He stays forever and keeps on galloping.

"He has relaxed now and is starting to improve."
