Pipe goes for double in Hennessy

RACING: Great Endeavour will bid for a rare big-race double when he takes on an 18-strong field in tomorrow’s Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury. The David Pipe-trained horse won the Paddy Power Gold Cup at Cheltenham this month and will now go for a prize won seven years ago by Celestial Gold, saddled by Pipe’s father Martin. Paul Nicholls has two fancied runners in Aiteen Thirtythree and Michel Le Bon, while two of last season’s best novice chasers, Wayward Prince and Wymott, also feature.
