The Big Dog Set To Take On Ireland's Best Chasers

Preparations for the Grand National continue for The Big Dog and his midlands owners.

The Big Dog is set to take on some of the best chasers in Ireland as he continues to prepare for a run in this year's Aintree Grand National.

The Peter Fahy trained runner will enter this year's Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown as a major underdog, with Cheltenham favourites Stattler and Galopin Des Champs well ahead on official ratings.

The Mahler gelding, owned by Offaly duo Damien and Colin Kelly, has picked up wins in the Troytown Chase and Munster National and ran a very creditable third place in the Welsh National at Chepstow last time out.
