Nicholls joins the Denmark rosta
OWNER Malcolm Denmark has added Paul Nicholls to the long list of his trainers past and present.
Denmark’s decision to send horses to Irish champion trainer Willie Mullins was rewarded when his chaser Pleasant Company came within a whisker of winning this year’s Grand National.
Others to train for the media mogul have included Sir Henry Cecil, James Fanshawe, Carl Llewellyn, Warren Greatrex, Fergal O’Brien and Mark Pitman.
Denmark is transferring three-year-old Scaramanga from Fanshawe to ten-times champion trainer Nicholls with a second horse to follow.
