Midlands National Bid For Final Nudge
Posted on 18th March 2017
Final Nudge is one of 3 runners for us this afternoon and will line up in the Betfred Midlands Grand National (An Open Handicap Chase) (Listed Race)(Class 1) at 3.35 under Trevor Whelan for owners Corbett Stud.
A three times winner over fences this season, Final Nudge is stepping into unknown territory this afternoon taking on the 4m1f marathon for the first time but is already a winner over 3 miles and has jumped very well to date earning his place in such a prestigious event which is to be shown live on ITV4.
Wade Harper will be joining stable mate Final Nudge on the journey to Uttoxeter today as he is set to take his place in the Betfred Supports Jack Berry House Handicap Chase under Noel Fehily for owner Favourites Racing (Syndication) Ltd 4 whilst Crank Em Up heads North to Newcastle for a tilt at the Sun Bets Northern Staying Novices’ Hurdle Series Final Novices’ Handicap Hurdle and will be partnered by James Davies for Favourites Racing (Syndication) Ltd 12.
