Will Gordon Elliott Be Celebrating Another Irish Grand National Winner On Monday?
With the Cheltenham Races very much in the rear-view mirror, The Jumps Racing Podcast is back and there is plenty to discuss during a 'National'-themed Episode 52.
Your regular hosts, Sean and Chris, look back on the Scottish Grand National at Ayr, where there was a surprised 25/1 winner. Sean discusses his tips from that race and also hails Verdana Blue, who enhanced her remarkable record for the season by winning the Scottish Champion Hurdle.
Nicky Henderson's unsung heroine might not be finished for the season either, despite winning five times already, and a tilt at the Punchestown Festival, as well as a possible move to the flat for the Ebor Handicap has been touted.
Henderson continues to trail Paul Nicholls in the Trainers' Championship title race, with Nicholls on course to move a step closer to Martin Pipe's record 15 crowns.
The podcast's A-To-Z series of cult racing heroes continues apace with the letter 'W' and racing writer, Steve Chambers, joins the team to look back at a three-time King George Chase winner. This week's pick was quite 'The Lad'...
Finally, it's a quiet weekend coming up in Britain but there is some mouth-watering action to enjoy in Ireland. The lads run the rule over the Ryanair Gold Cup Novice Chase and take a look at some of the leading runners and riders for the Irish Grand National, which takes place at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday.
Please do rate, review and subscribe to The Jumps Racing Podcast and let the lads fill your ears with horse racing chat as we head into the Easter Weekend.
