David Pipe is a British horse racing trainer and son of famous and successful trainer Martin Pipe. He is now following in his father’s footsteps and will aim for more success at the Aintree Festival this week.
In total, Pipe has 18 entries across the Aintree Festival as he looks for success in a number of races. The Grand National takes centre stage on Saturday though and for this race, he has Swing Bill and Junior in action from 4.15pm on Saturday 14th April 2012.
Leading up to the Aintree Festival, Pipe has enjoyed four wins in the last two weeks to ensure that the winning habit is there going into this week. He was victorious in his most recent race too with Shoegazer successful on the 9th April.
As for major wins, Grands Crus was successful on Boxing Day in the Feltham Novices’ Chase. Tom Scudamore was the jockey on this occasion and he is the riding Junior in the Grand National this week. Big things are expected.
Previous National successes
Pipe has had success in the Grand National before with Comply or Die winning the 2008 race with Timmy Murphy as the jockey. This was a famous day for Pipe and one he would love to emulate four years on.
It took his father 20 years to enjoy success in the Grand National, so this was almost immediate reward for Pipe and one which made people discuss his credentials more and more.
For Pipe to have success at the Grand National this year with any of his entries, you can get odds of 9/1. More specifically, you can get 14/1 for Junior to win the National, while Swing Bill is a massive outsider at 100/1 with many bookies.
Will 2012 be another famous year at Aintree for David Pipe?
