Pipe targets Cartmel’s biggest ever prize

Grand National winning trainer David Pipe has set his sights on the biggest prize ever offered at Cartmel , the £28,000 added Totepool.com Cumbria Crystal Trophy, highlight of the seven race card at the Lake District track on Saturday.

Pipe has plenty of entries, but the master of Pond House plans to have just one runner – in the big one.

"Cartmel have done a brilliant job with this meeting with the prize money they are putting up and I shall certainly be running either Shoegazer or Decoy in the Cumbria Crystal Trophy.

“At the moment, I am leaning towards Shoegazer, who won’t mind the ground however it turns out and is in good form as he won very nicely at Southwell last Sunday.

“The problem is that he does have a lot of weight, but he is an improving horse and I think he will be the one representing me” said Pipe.
