Ladbrokes Trophy: Enrilo aimed at Ladbrokes Trophy by Paul Nicholls

Paul Nicholls will prime Enrilo for a shot at the £250,000 Ladbrokes Trophy in Newbury later in the month. This is following his demotion from third place for interference during the Sandown bet365 Gold Cup in April. Enrilo is currently two from five over fences, which included a win at Newbury in February.

After being allotted 10st 10lb, Enrilo is the 7-1 ante-post favorite with the sponsors for the prestigious stay handicap chase on November 27, 2021. “The intention is for Enrilo to go straight to Newbury, it has always been the plan for him. He will be there fit, fresh, and well,” stated the Ditcheat trainer who is seeking a fourth win within this race.

“He won at Newbury last year and ran well at Sandown, where he was a bit more green in front. We have learned lessons in that he doesn’t want to be in the front too soon, but he travels well in a race which will suit a race like the Ladbrokes Trophy.”

“The Ladbrokes Trophy is always a hot race, but we are trying our best to get there in great shape, with a great chance.

“The trip will be no worry at all for him. He has matured a bit this season and grown up.”

Nicholls’ other entries may have different targets. Next Destination is more likely to run at the Betfair Chase at Haydock on November 20, while Lalor will be running for the Paddy Power Gold Cup in Cheltenham on November 13.
