Lalor secures emotional Aintree victoryPosted on Friday 13th April 2018 @ 16.06

Lalor paid tribute to his late former trainer Richard Woollacott by securing victory in the Betway Top Novices' Hurdle at Aintree.

The 40-year-old South Molton handler passed away at the age of 40 on January 23, but his wife Kayley opted to continue his work by taking Lalor to the Merseyside course for a crack at a Grade One success.

And, having won the Grade Two bumper at this meeting a year ago with Woollacott in attendance, Lalor didn't let his memory down as he moved to the front after jumping the third flight from home and came in two-and-a-half lengths clear of Vision Des Flos in second.

Afterwards, champion jockey Richard Johnson told ITV Racing: "This is hard to put into words. It was very sad what happened and this horse last year was his first big winner.

"To come and do it again in his memory, for his family, is fantastic. It was a big shock what happened.

"Hopefully this horse will keep Richard's name in lights for a long time to come."

He added: "I hadn't sat on him since last year and tongue in cheek I said it would be nice if we got the same sort of performance and I'd ride him the same way.

"He's a lovely big horse who stays really well and it's all gone to plan, he really put his head down after the last.

"It's a special day for the family and I'm sure Richard is smiling as well."

Meanwhile, Woollacott said: "It's unbelievable, I don't know how that has just happened. "It's a very emotional day, but obviously I've had a little bit of help from up there.

"This is a really special course for me and Richard, as we had some of our best days here.

"It's unreal, we love the horse and this is amazing."
