Meade back in business.

NOEL MEADE, who has had no runners since February 9 due to a bug in his yard, is back in business this weekend with two runners at Navan today and another two at Leopardstown tomorrow, writes Tony O'Hehir.

With Cheltenham ten days away he is hoping for positive signs from the quartet that his team is over its problems.

Meade said: "We haven't had runners since Hennessy day at Leopardstown. The horses picked up some bug. It passed from one to another very quickly and they ran temperatures for a few days. We had to be patient and hopefully they're over it."

He added: "We've done the tests on the horses running over the weekend and they seem fine. We run Corskeagh Royale and The Herds Garden at Navan, while Zigger Zagger and Busty Brown run at Leopardstown on Sunday.

"We'll see how they get on and then wait to see how things go in the week before finalising Cheltenham plans."

Meade's festival entries include Ladbrokes World Hurdle hope Monksland, Ned Buntline and Mullaghanoe River.
