News in Brief
Grand National to be run before betting shops reopen
The Randox Grand National meeting will remain in its scheduled April 8-10 slot after the Jockey Club said there was not a “solid enough basis” for changing the fixture, or the Grand National itself, until after betting shops in England are scheduled to reopen on April 12.
Simple The Betts ruled out of Cheltenham
Simply The Betts, who gave Harry Whittington such a thrill when winning at Cheltenham last year, will miss the meeting this season, but the trainer still hopes to make festival headlines with Rouge Vif and Saint Calvados.
Hughes limiting runners before owners return
Former champion jockey Richard Hughes, who now trains in Lambourn, has welcomed the imminent return of owners on track and says he has limited his runners in their absence.
RECENT LAMBOURN WINNERS
Assimilation continues to be in super form and there is a good pot here today worth taking a shot at. Joanna Mason rides claiming a valuable 5lb which can only be a help and I’m sure he will run another big race and try his best as always.
Capriolette is really well in herself and we have freshened her up at home. She drops down a grade today for the first time and has a great draw, so I am very hopeful that she can get back to winning ways.
Mot A MotNicky Henderson
Mot A Mot ran a nice race first time out in a bumper at Exeter in very heavy conditions. He learned plenty from the race and will have come on for the run plenty.
She is a really lovely, uncomplicated filly who made a lovely debut over hurdles for us. She has come on for the run and we are looking forward to seeing how she has progressed.
