John White, the rider of Esha Ness, "winner" of the void Grand National of 1993, had his first success as a trainer yesterday with Maries Polly at Clonmel. The winner races for a syndicate which includes Esha Ness's owner, Patrick Bancroft.

"Esha Ness is going well with Jenny Pitman and we are looking for decent ground to get him wound up for the National," Bancroft said. "He had to miss last year's race and I'd love to give John the chance to make up for what happened two years ago."
