Noel Meade’s Snow Falcon is also in both races, and the trainer said: “Snow Falcon is in good form and the plan is to go for the Flogas Novice Chase at Leopardstown on February 4.
“We have put him in the two races at Cheltenham. I suppose his run in the Flogas will give us more of an idea, although, at this stage, I would say the RSA looks more up his street, but we will see.
“Touch wood, he has been jumping fences better than he jumped hurdles, which is encouraging because he was a good hurdler. Fingers crossed, he can keep going the right way.”
