First for Morris Hennessy beckons


RACING:Michael O’Leary’s Gigginstown Stud team enjoyed a notable treble at Navan on Sunday and have left the Mouse Morris-trained First Lieutenant and Magnanimity (Dessie Hughes) among the 22 horses left in Saturday’s Hennessy at Newbury after yesterday’s forfeit stage.

The Nicky Henderson-trained RSA winner Bob’s Worth heads most antepost betting lists for the big pot, which no Irish horse has won since Bright Highway (1980).

As expected Tom Gibney has also left in Irish National hero Lion Na Bearnai.

Gigginstown has also kept open the possibility of running Trifolium in Saturday’s other big cross-channel prize, the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle.
