Mullins Saddles Joint Favourites In Bid For First BoyleSports Irish Grand National
Willie Mullins now has two of four co-favourites for the BoyleSports Irish Grand National after Burrows Saint saw money and joined one of his stablemates at the head of the betting.
With Ruby Walsh booked for the ride, the six-year-old who won twice in March closed into 10/1 from 14/1 with BoyleSports to claim the €270,000 up for grabs for winning Easter Monday’s showdown at Fairyhouse.
Mullins already boasted a market leader in the shape of Pairofbrowneyes while the quartet of favourites is completed by Ted Walsh’s Any Second Now and Gordon Elliott’s Jury Duty, who fell in the Aintree equivalent two weekends ago.
Tout Est Permis, who has won three races on the bounce for Noel Meade, was also gambled into 11/1 from 14/1 in the week before the off, while General Principle is a 20/1 shot to replicate Tiger Roll by winning back-to-back Nationals under the eye of Gordon Elliott.
