Harbour To Dock In Fairyhouse

Chelsea Harbour is set to make a quick reappearance in the Powers Whiskey Irish Grand National after making a quick exit at Aintree on Saturday.[LNB]He only got as a far as the third fence in the John Smith's version but was soon caught.[LNB]As he appears none the worse for his exertions, trainer Tom Mullins plans to take the nine-year-old to Fairyhouse on Monday.[LNB]"He's come out of it surprisingly very good, so he'll more than likely take his chance next Monday in the Irish National," said the County Kilkenny-based handler.[LNB]"After his fall he cantered round to the stands and pulled up then.[LNB]"He was a bit excited obviously the day after but we took some blood from him this morning and his regular rider rode him out. He's very good, so we might take a chance on Monday."[LNB]Mullins does not expect his other Irish National possible Mustangsallyrally to make the cut, but he does have another race in mind for the eight-year-old the same day.[LNB]"He's in the Irish National but it looks like he won't get in," Mullins added.[LNB]"He'll probably go for the novice handicap the same day if he doesn't get in the big one."[LNB]
