THE National Hunt season is still only in its infancy but it is already shaping up to be one to remember for trainer Philip Rothwell whose latest double pushed him on to the 10-winner mark for the current campaign.

Over the course of last season the trainer sent out a total of 11 winners but he is already on course to better that tally by some distance following a highly industrious summer. Furthermore, the trainer’s double was supplied by two improving types who could yet have more to offer.
