Mee heads Fairyhouse weights

The weights for Monday’s Ladbrokes Irish Grand National have risen after both Seabass and Apt Approach were taken out at the latest forfeit stage.

Gordon Elliott’s Roi De Mee is now the highest-rated horse left in the race, followed by The Midnight Club and Magnanimity and Quiscover Fontaine.

Others to be taken out include Cappa Bleu, last year’s winner Organisedconfusion, Psycho, Giles Cross, Le Beau Bai and Up The Beat.

Allee Garde has been left in by Willie Mullins, and along with Quiscover Fontaine, Shakervilz, Some Target and Raptor.

Lastoftheleaders is likely to represent last year’s winning trainer Arthur Moore while the mare Leanne could run for Bill Harney.

Mouse Morris’ Four Commanders has been well-backed in recent days while Ninetieth Minute has returned to form in time to be considered. The two British entries are Jonjo O’Neill’s Cheltenham winner Alfie Sherrin and Nicky Henderson’s Aigle D’Or.
