Aintree aim for Double
Last Updated: 09/10/14 1:49pm
Double Seven will again be trained with a view to returning to Aintree next April for the Crabbie's Grand National.
Martin Brassil's eight-year-old finished an honourable third on Merseyside last season to put the seal on a fine campaign which yielded five consecutive victories between June and October.
The JP McManus-owned Double Seven has yet to return to full training, but Brassil is optimistic he has the right profile to improve with age.
``He's in good shape, but he's pre-training at the moment and is not back with me just yet,'' said the County Kildare handler.
``We haven't really sorted out a plan this year, but if he goes over hurdles or fences first it wouldn't really matter as it's all the same to him.
``He's only eight, so you'd hope there'd be a fair bit more to come.
``Aintree is very much at the front of my mind.''
