Chicago Grey is bypassing the Cheltenham Festival and being prepared for the Grand National at Aintree.
After delighting Gordon Elliott by finishing second behind Rubi Light in the Red Mills Chase at Gowran Park, the nine-year-old is now in the mix in racing's biggest event on April 14.
The grey will miss Cheltenham where he previously won the four-mile National Hunt Chase.
Chicago Grey, who has been given 10st 13lb in the National, is priced at 25-1.
It is shame that Chicago Grey is missing this year's Cheltenham Festival as he runs brilliantly around the course.
But he will produce a splendid performance in the Grand National as he will add a thrill to the mix and spice things up.
Chicago Grey is a fantastic horse and should not be ruled out.
