Its All Iffs And Buts…

Papillon, with delighted jockey Ruby Walsh, wins the 2000 Martell Grand National, at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool. * 02/04/01 Papillon (left, green top), ridden by jockey Ruby Walsh, jumping the last fence on his way to win the 2000 Martell Grand National. Papillon will be able to defend his Martell Grand National crown after the Irish Department of Agriculture today permitted horses to travel to Britain for the three-day Aintree fixture.

Meanwhile, Bill Turner’s Ede’Iffs Rock is becoming more than a little frustrating to follow, but the daughter of Saddler’s Rock steps up in trip this afternoon looking to end a frustrating run of second spots, three of them in a row with a length and a half defeat at Plumpton last week.

She is due to go up 4lb for future races after that improved effort, and connections will be keen to make the most of her current mark while they still can, suggesting she can at least go close in a highly competitive field for the 3.45pm this afternoon.
