Nick Luck Daily Ep 382 – Welsh National behind closed doors… What next?

Nick is joined by Daily Mirror journalist David Yates to discuss the latest news and events from around the racing world. They begin by digesting the news from the Welsh Assembly that Covid restrictions in Wales have forced the Welsh National to take place behind closed doors, and consider what that could mean in England and Scotland, with the help of RCA CEO David Armstrong. Coral Director Simon Clare gives the sponsor’s perspective on this significant blow to the industry, while Joe Tizzard drops in to talk about the chances of Native River and Elegant Escape, as well as Lostintranslation in the King George at Kempton. This week’s trip around the Bloodstock world with Weatherbys features an extended interview with Cheveley Park MD Chris Richardson, who reflects on the twin legacies of David Thompson and the stallion Pivotal, plus the burgeoning success of new sire Ulysses and the extraordinary National Hunt string, including Gold Cup and Savills Chase favourite A Plus Tard.
