Longsdon looking forward to seeing Ely Brown at Aintree

Despite having almost a year off the racecourse, Ely Brown is back on track and ready to line-up in Saturday’s Crabbie’s Grand National.

The ten-year-old will represent Chipping Norton trainer Charlie Longsdon in Saturday’s big race at Aintree, where he has won twice.

Ely Brown has run five times at Aintree and won twice over hurdles at the course but Saturday will pose a totally different test over the famous Grand National fences.

Ely Brown worked with Up To Something and No No Manolito at Lambourn in the build-up to the big race. Get a work rider’s view on the gallops on this You Tube clip and get this week’s Banbury Guardian for a full preview.
