New­land plots coup

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

DR RICHARD New­land is rid­ing high with 44 win­ners yield­ing al­most £500,000 in prize money so far this sea­son.

The for­mer GP is tar­get­ing a se­cond suc­cess in the Grand Na­tional fol­low­ing the tri­umph in 2014 of Pineau De Re which he owned with John Provan. This time their hopes rest on Abo­li­tion­ist who re­turned from a long ab­sence caused by a per­sis­tent pelvic in­jury to win over hur­dles at Ain­tree on No­vem­ber 10. Next up for the horse is the Becher Chase.

An­other ready vic­tory by Abo­li­tion­ist on Satur­day could have book­ies run­ning for cover four month’s ahead of the 2019 Grand Na­tional.
