Hemmings chases new Na­tional glory

The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

TREVOR Hemmings could have an­other Grand Na­tional can­di­date on his hands fol­low­ing the de­ci­sive suc­cess of the pro­gres­sive Lake View Lad in the Re­hearsal Chase at New­cas­tle a week ago.

It was his first run in the Hemmings silks fol­low­ing his pur­chase in a pri­vate deal from his pre­vi­ous owner Alis­tair Cochrane for about £70,000.

Hemmings has won the Na­tional twice in re­cent years with Bal­labriggs and Many Clouds and is mad keen to en­joy more suc­cess in the race that is so close to his heart.

The mud lov­ing Lake View Lad, aged eight, stays well, has plenty of win­ning form racing left handed and could fur­ther ad­ver­tise his Ain­tree claims in the Peter Marsh Chase at Hay­dock in Jan­uary.
