Trainer Paul Nolan has warned punters he is in no rush to make plans for the heavily hyped Shinrock Paddy, though he does believe the star could contest the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham next March.
The gelding registered his first Grade 1 success at Navan on Sunday, hosing up by 15 lengths in the Barry & Sandra Kelly Memorial Novice Hurdle on only his second start over obstacles.
Paul Nolan is in no hurry to make plans for Shinrock Paddy's next race after the five-year-old landed his first Grade One at Navan on Sunday.
The Deploy gelding looked an exciting prospect in winning the Barry & Sandra Kelly Memorial Novice Hurdle by 15 lengths on only his second start over obstacles.
"He's come out of the race 100%. Everything's perfect," said Paul Nolan.
"We have no plans made so far - yesterday was the plan. We know now what we have on our hands. He did it well, he's a Grade One winner now.
"We'll settle down with the owner and make plans during the week.
"More than likely he's a stayer and with better ground likely during the spring we'll probably go three miles with him, so at this stage we'd be looking at the Albert Bartlett."
