Prince ruled out of National with fracture

GRAND NATIONAL second-favourite Prince De Beauchene was on Tuesday night dramatically ruled out of the Aintree showpiece.

Writing on his website, trainer Willie Mullins revealed: "We have had some bad news about Prince De Beauchene. He had not been striding out for the last few days and following a bone scan in Troytown Veterinary Hospital, it has been confirmed that he has a minor stress fracture in his illium.

"He will require at least six weeks' box rest, so unfortunately he will miss the Aintree Grand National."
