BULLISH ABOUT THE CHIEF: While bumper crowds turned out for the Vale of Lune’s Whittington Races on Easter Saturday (pictured left), the Cartmel stable of Jimmy Moffatt was all set for a crack at the Scottish Grand National with stable star Chief Dan George who became the new ante-post favourite after sustained support. The trainer said: "It is nice to be going into a big race with a horse with a chance. It is a big week for the stable.

“Chief Dan George is very well. He is in great form. We have freshened him up and he is like a bull and raring to go.

"He certainly deserves to take his chance in a big one like this and I hope we won't be disappointed
