Outsider: Liberty Counsel takes Grand National win

The 50/1 shot was able to hold off the challenge from Willie Mullins’ Away We Go.

50/1 LONG-SHOT LIBERTY Counsel finished strongest to win today’s Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.

Jockey Ben Dalton was able to see off the stiff competition of Willie Mullins’ Away We Go (25/1) and Home Farm (10/1).

Davy Russell on Sweeney Tunes (12/1) could only do enough for fourth place, one better than the fancied Panther Claw (9/1).
