Parrott hopes to take off at Grand National

First published in Sport

A REDMARLEY trainer is looking forward to tomorrow’s famous Crabbie’s Grand National at Aintree.

Hilary Parrott was heartened by Wayward Prince’s recent fluency over the mock Grand National fences, which are situated in Lambourn, Berkshire.

The 10-year-old gelding claimed the Grade One Sefton Novices’ Hurdle at Aintree four years ago and will again be ridden by Jack Doyle in the major race.

Parrott said: “We went to Lambourn with him and he jumped some of the National-type fences. That gave us quite a bit of encouragement.”

But Wayward Prince is way down the betting with most bookmakers at around 50-1.

Teaforthree, Monbeg Dude and Long Run are among the most fancied
