Gold Present out as Grand National declares runners

LAMBOURN Trainer Nicky Henderson will have to wait another year if he is to win his first Grand National as a trainer.

The current Jump champion trainer did enter Gold Present into the race, but it was announced on Thursday morning that the horse will not feature in the race.

Gold Present would have been Henderson's 41st entry in the National and the successful trainer has yet to claim the prize in the prestigious race.

The seven-barrows trainer has come close on several occasions with Zongalero (1979) and The Tsarevich (1987) both finishing second.

Despite not having a runner in this year's race, Henderson does have the likes of Brain Power, Apple's Shakira, Might Bite and My Tent Or Yours all featuring throughout the Aintree Festival.
