The eight-year-old had an excellent campaign last season, winning the Galway Plate, the JNwine.com Champion Chase at Down Royal and the Lexus at Leopardstown before placing at Prestbury Park in March and in the Punchestown Gold Cup.
Meade said: “We’re looking forward to getting him going and he’s in great form.
“I couldn’t be happier with what he’s been doing at home and it’s all systems go.
“The ground would be more of a worry than the two-and-a-half [miles]. “The track wouldn’t be ideal, but there’s nothing we can do about that and I think he’s 100 per cent ready to go.”
