    Blanc in the BoyleSports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on March 28. The
    nine-year-old enjoyed testing conditions to win the Betfred Classic Chase at
    Warwick in January but the ground had dried out too much at Newcastle when he
    unseated his rider in the Eider Chase last month.Lee is hoping wet weather
    returns before the end of the month after Russe Blanc was allotted 9st 13lb for
    the Easter Monday showpiece. Hes very much a possibility at the moment. Its the
    dream of his owner Mark Jackson to go to Ireland, but it comes plenty quick
    enough on the back of the Eider, said the Presteigne trainer, who has enjoyed a
    run of big-race success since taking over from her father, Richard.He was fine
    after the Eider. He didnt have a hard race, he just didnt enjoy the ground. It
    was a bit on the quick side for him.He was a Warwick Classic Chase winner on
    heavy ground. Were hoping for more of the same in Ireland.Russe Blanc is one of
    11 British entries from eight different stables among a list of 90 for the
    marathon test.Jonjo ONeill has three, headed by Beg To Differ 10st 4lb), as he
    bids to win the race for the third time after Butlers Cabin in 2007 and
    Shutthefrontdoor under Barry Geraghty two years ago.Others include the Neil
    Mulholland-trained Caroles Destrier (10st 13lb), David Pipes Broadway Buffalo
    (10st 2lb) and Vivaldi Collonges (10st 4lb) from the Paul Nicholls stable.Willie
    Mullins is making a concerted effort to end his Irish Grand National hoodoo by
    putting in 17 entries.His team is headed by Grade One winner Valseur Lido, who
    tops the weights on 11st 10lb from a 90-strong entry for the Easter Monday
    showpiece.Also among his squad are On His Own (11st 3lb), Measureofmydreams
    (10st 7lb) and Roi Des Francs (10st 12lb).The first three horses home in last
    years race are engaged once again with the winner Thunder And Roses (10st 7lb)
    one of five possibles from Sandra Hughess yard.The Mouse Morris-trained Rule The
    World (10st 7lb) and Jim Dreapers Sizing Coal (9st 9lb), who were second and
    third, could try again.Dreaper has another hopeful in the novice Venitien De Mai
    (9st 13lb), who booked his ticket by winning the Leinster National at Naas on
    Sunday.Gordon Elliott is another top trainer looking for his first win in the
    Irish National and has entered a team of 12 including Mala Beach (10st 12lb) and
    recent Thurles winner Lord Scoundrel (10st 7lb).Cantlow (9st 10lb) finished best
    of the British challengers in sixth place for Paul Webber last year but is now
    in the care of Enda Bolger, who also has Gilgamboa (11st 2lb).My Murphy won the
    Thyestes Chase for trainer Liam Burke at Gowran Park in January and he is on
    10st 10lbs as he bids to improve on his seventh place last year.

    .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the
    Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal
    allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were
    inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not.
