Kayley Woollacott’s Lalor won the Arkle Trophy Trial at Cheltenham on Sunday to make him a real player in the Arkle next March on what was his Chase debut. If he were to win that race it would be an emotional victory for all involved. Wollacott is the widow of Richard, the late trainer was found dead at this yard last January.
Wollacott stated yesterday that Lalor was her husband’s favourite horse and the manner of his victory yesterday indicates he is a real player come the festival.
He showed why he won a Grade 1 at Aintree in April with a faultless display of jumping before pulling away from some decent horses to win by seven lengths with ease.
