Five for Jonjo at National
1:20pm Thursday 7th February 2013 in Sport
JONJO O’Neill has five early entries for the John Smith’s Grand National at Aintree on April 6.
The 2012 runner-up Sunnyhillboy, denied by a nose by Neptune Collonges, is a possible for the £975,000 showpiece.
Former Gold Cup hero Imperial Commander, trained by Naunton’s Nigel Twiston-Davies, is a possible but more likely to concentrate on retaining the big Cheltenham prize.
As well as Sunnyhillboy, Temple Guiting-based O’Neill could call on dual Ryanair Chase winner Albertas Run, Cheltenham Festival victor Alfie Sherrin, Lost Glory and Mister Hyde.
Meanwhile, Eastlake (11-2) won the Betfred ‘The Home Of Goals Galore’ Handicap Chase at Sandown with Richie McLernon’s mount beating Lord Singer by six lengths.
