Burrows Saint, who gave Willie Mullins his first success in the Irish Grand National two years ago, among the champion trainer’s 16 entries for the Easter Monday race early next month.
Acapella Bourgeois, who defeated Burrows Saint in the Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse last month, is also among the runners for team Mullins.
Having taken over the license at Gordon Elliott’s yard, Denise Foster has 22 entries in the race including dual Aintree Grand National winner Tiger Roll and 2018 Irish National champion General Principle.
The Storyteller, Coko Beach, Conflated, Pencilfulloflead and the 14-year-old Kruzhlinin are other possible runners for Foster.
Home By The Lee, A Wave Of The Sea and Sempo are among Joseph O'Brien’s nine entries while Noel Meade’s squad of seven includes Snow Falcon, Tout Est Permis and Brace Yourself. Meade won the race with the Ross Geraghty-ridden The Bunny Boiler in 2002.
Henry de Bromhead has put five in the race, the quintet headed by the Cheltenham Festival winner Balko Des Flos and Minella Times. Runner-up to Tiger Roll in the Aintree Grand National in 2019, Magic Of Light is one of three entries for Jessica Harrington who won the Irish Grand National with Our Duke two years earlier.
Another with three entries is Paul Nolan who could call upon leading novice chaser Latest Exhibition. Moyhenna is the highest-rated of Denis Hogan’s trio while Tom Mullins has also entered three horses, with his dual course winner and Porterstown Handicap Chase heroine Court Maid leading the way.
“The entry for the BoyleSports Irish Grand National is as strong as we hoped for," said Peter Roe, General Manager of Fairyhouse Racecourse.
"To have Tiger Roll among the 98 horses entered is intriguing to say the least and there will be far more shape to the race when the handicapper has his say on Monday week, after the Cheltenham Festival performances have been taken into account.”
