Swan left with ‘no regrets’

Swan admits he may still have a small interest in training, but expects to send out his last few runners under his current guise next week. Charlie Swan may be handing in his licence in the coming days but he showed he can still train a winner as Rogue Trader claimed the opening 2015 Navan Membership Maiden Hurdle at Navan.

I might train the odd one for a bumper in our own colours and a few point-to-pointers.” Rogue Trader, who runs in the famous colours of John and Sue Magnier, will now switch to the care of Tom Taaffe. Swan added: “He’s a staying type of horse but he’s not slow and he’s a chaser in the making. “They went a strong gallop and Nina used her brain as I told her to make it.” last_img read more
