Mania hopeful for National double
- From the section Horse Racing
Grand National-winning jockey Ryan Mania says winning the National double would be "incredible", as he prepares Auroras Encore for the Scottish Grand National on Saturday.
Mania caused a shock by winning the Grand National earlier in April, and is hoping Auroras Encore can be the first horse to do the National double since Red Rum in 1974.
Mania also says he is "still a bit sore" after suffering neck and back injuries following a fall at Hexham, just a day after his triumph at Aintree.
