The Racing Paper - - Trends And Diary -

VIS­I­TORS to the In­ter­na­tional Horse Show at Olympia just be­fore Xmas saw a glimpse of the fu­ture as they watched the Shet­land Grand Na­tional run twice daily for a week.

Among the young­sters to tri­umph in the races were Lucy Aspell, daugh­ter of dual Grand Na­tional win­ning jockey Leighton Aspell, and Olive Ni­cholls, daugh­ter of ten times cham­pion trainer Paul Ni­cholls.

An­other to shine was Lu­cas Mur­phy whose dad Timmy also rode to vic­tory in the Grand Na­tional.
