Pandorama on reappear trail

Meade hopeful Pandorama can get his season back on track

Noel Meade is hoping that Pandorama will enjoy a welcome change of luck on today’s Lexus Chase at Leopardstown.

The seven year old looked set to take high rank in the staying pursues division at the start of the season but things have not gone according to plan so far.

He was forced to miss an intended run at Down Royal after he was found to have blood coming from a nostril and then he made an early fault in the Hennessy at Newbury before being nearly brought down and was pulled up.

"Hopefully we can get Pandorama back on track but it's a rough ask for him," said Meade.

"The season just hasn't gone right for him so far, things have plotted against him but that's the way it goes.

"We've always thought he is the horse to run in this type of race, so we're going there and we're going to give it our best shot.

"The heavy ground should be fine for him."
