Donegal Jockey Takes Ride On Enjoy D'Allen In Irish National

The Westmeath trained horse is among the final 30 runners.

Donegal jockey Conor Orr has been handed the ride on Enjoy D'Allen in Monday's Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse. 

The two time winner this season will carry a weight of 10st 13lbs. 

The Rathmullan man will take a valuable 3lbs off the back of Ciaran Murphy's charge. 

Orr has had a long standing association with Charlestown Stud in Mullingar, getting plenty of chances for previous license holder Dot Love and that is continuing since Murphy has taken the helm. 

The ante-post favourite Tiger Roll will not be taking his chance, he will instead go to the Betfred Bowl at Aintree.

The withdrawal of Tiger Roll means the Paul Nolan trained 'Latest Exhibition' will run and carry top weight of 11 stone 10 pounds under jockey Bryan Cooper in the 3 miles 5 furlong contest.
