First winner for Meehan
Meehan spent time in Ireland with Brian Hamilton, Colin McBratney and Willie Mullins. This was his third ride for Mulholland.
Mulholland trains at Conkwell Grange Stables in Bath, and his most high-profile horse of recent times is Midnight Chase, winner of the Grade 2 Argento Chase last season before finishing seventh to Synchronised in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham.
On his seasonal reappearance in the Grade 2 Charlie Hall at Wetherby in November he came in third behind Silviniaco Conti, and lines up this afternoon in the Lexus Chase at Leopardstown.
Flemenstar, Sir Des Champs and Tidal Bay head a mouth-watering line-up of nine runners in the featured Grade 1 Lexus Chase at Leopardstown this afternoon.
