Benbulben's set to Mount attempt at Bobbyjo Chase

MOUNT BENBULBEN could have his first outing since finishing fourth in the King George as he features among 10 entries for Saturday's Attheraces Bobbyjo Chase at Fairyhouse.

The nine-year-old was last seen finishing 17 lengths behind Silviniaco Conti at Kempton on St Stephen's Day and is one of three potential runners for trainer Gordon Elliott.

The Trim handler also has Toner D'Oudairies and Roi Du Mee in contention, with the pair both sporting the colours of Gigginstown House Stud.

Gigginstown also have Colm Murphy's Quito De La Roque and the Charlie Swan-trained Make A Track in the reckoning.

Willie Mullins has two possibilities in Thyestes Chase winner On His Own and Prince De Beachene, both of whom are possible Crabbie's Grand National contenders for owners Graham and Andrea Wylie. Líon Na Bearnaí, winner of the 2012 Irish Grand National, could take his chance for Thomas Gibney while Raz De Maree and Buckers Bridge complete the list.
