Irish Grand National set for Latest Exhibition at Fairyhouse

Paul Nolan-trained novice Latest Exhibition will carry a top weight of 11st 10lb for the BoyleSports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday.

The Irish Grand National will be the first race that the eight-year-old has stepped into handicap company after finishing second to Monkfish in two Grade One contests at Leopardstown over the winter.

The dual Grand National Tiger Roll was removed from the race at the final declaration stage, and his owners Gigginstown House Stud now have four Irish National runners - Coko Beach, Mortal, Run Wild Fred and Roaring Bull - plus one of the three reserves, Eurobot.

Brahma Bull, Salsaretta, Agusta Gold, Dragon D'estruval and Robin De Carlow are among Willie Mullins' team of five lining up.

Among other fancied runners to stand their ground are Sempo and The Big Dog.

Escaria Ten, third in the National Hunt Challenge cup at Cheltenham, is one of four contenders for Denise Foster.

The Philip Hobbs-trained Jerrysback is the only English runner.
