Nick Luck Daily Ep 415 – Nicholls stays on the front foot

Nick is joined by Racing Post senior writer Lee Mottershead to discuss the day’s news and events from around the racing world. They lead this morning with Paul Nicholls’s plans for a huge weekend at Newbury, as the 12 times Champion trainer joins the show to give a positive bulletin on his stable stars despite a well publicized poor run of form that is uncharacteristic for the yard. Nick and Lee also examine the quality and quantity of entries for the weekend, discuss the rise and rise of champion jockey-elect Brian Hughes, who is both candid and self-critical in a fascinating interview with Nick, and wonder whether Aussie superstar rider James MacDonald is on the right horse when the promising Home Affairs takes on star sprinter Nature Strip in the upcoming Lightning Stakes. Niamh Woods from Rathbarry and Glenview Studs is this week’s Weatherbys Bloodstock guest.
