Ahead of the Grand National on Saturday 14th, leading British jockeys Bryony Frost and Nico de Boinville will join racing journalist, Alice Fox-Pitt for a panel discussion at George - kicking off with women in the sport. 22 year old Bryony Frost, who predominantly rides for former champion trainer Paul Nicholls, joins us following her first Grade One winner on Black Corton and ahead of the Grand National riding Milansbar.
Nico de Boinville, based at Nicky Henderson's Seven Barrows yard, has an established career as one of the country's top National Hunt jockeys. Since Nico turned professional in 2014, following his first Cheltenham Festival win on Whisper, less than a year later he won the Cheltenham Gold Cup on Coneygree, the first novice to win the race in 41 years. Today, Nico is Henderson's principal jockey and will be riding Gold Present in the Grand National.
