Cheltenham Festival hero Flooring Porter set for 2022 Grand National Festival


Two-time Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle winner Flooring Porter will be heading to Aintree next month where he will look to score in the Liverpool Hurdle.

The stable star of Gavin Cromwell scored for the second year running at the Cheltenham Festival last week, however with a clear preference for left-handed contests, it looks as though the Punchestown Festival towards the end of April is out of the question.

Under Danny Mullins, Flooring Porter earned an excellent front-running win at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival with a winning distance of two-and-three-quarter lengths ahead of Thyme Hill and Paisley Park. The runner will now be lining up in the Grade One Liverpool Hurdle at this year’s Grand National Festival.

Cromwell said: “Flooring Porter is great, he’s had a canter and he is 100 per cent.

“He has really grown up – it is just maturity, but when you take him out of his familiar surroundings it can affect him, but he is a very intelligent horse at the back of it all.

“We got him over there good and early which was a big help. He was a little on his toes for the first couple of days, but then got settled into the place and the red hood was a big help at the start.

“He definitely won’t go to Punchestown as he won’t go right-handed, so we will go to Aintree and there is a possibility he will go to Auteuil (Grande Course de Haies d’Auteuil).”
