Did you know: Martin Brassil has long been known as one of the more inconspicuous characters of Irish racing. He had quietly gone about his business of training racehorses since taking out his licence in 1994, but erupted on to the international scene when saddling Numbersixvalverde to win the Aintree Grand National in 2006. Not long after that win, he was sent a horse called Nickname and he would prove to be a revelation over fences, winning eight Graded contests including the Grade 1 Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown in 2006.
