Where did Rachael Blackmore finish in the 2022 Irish Grand National on Full Time Score?

Rachael Blackmore's mount finished last of the horses that finished the Irish Grand National on Easter Monday.

The Tipperary jockey partnered Full Time Score for Henry de Bromhead and finished 15th of the 27 runners, with 12 horses either falling, being brought down or pulling up.

Local trainer Dermot McLoughlin won the race for the second year running.

Lord Lariat was ridden to victory by jockey Paddy O'Hanlon, who lives close to the track, at odds of 40/1.

The victory comes after Ratoath trainer McLoughlin won the €500,000 contest with 150/1 shot Freewheelin Dylan 12 months ago.

Gaillard Du Mesnil was sent off the 11/2 favourite for this year's renewal and finished third under Paul Townend, with Frontal Assault finishing second, while Screaming Colours (18/1) was fourth and Early Doors (33/1) came fifth.

But there was success for Blackmore's partner Brian Hayes earlier on the card when he landed an eventful renewal of the Devenish Chase on Easy Game for the second year running.

A field of six runners went to post for the Grade Two contest, with Easy Game a 15-2 chance to successfully defend his crown for Willie Mullins in the hands of Brian Hayes, who is the partner of Rachael Blackmore.

There was an early change to the complexion of the race after the winner’s front-running stablemate Blackbow suffered a heavy and ultimately fatal fall at the third fence, leaving another Mullins runner in Janidil in front.

The latter was the 8-11 favourite having been placed in the Irish Gold Cup and the Ryanair Chase on his last two starts, but he too crashed out in the back straight.

His exit left Cilaos Emery in the lead, but he was claimed by Easy Game between the final two fences and there were seven and a half lengths separating the pair at the line.

Here's the result from the Irish Grand National:

1st: Lord Lariat 40/1

2nd: Frontal Assault 18/1

3rd: Gaillard Du Mesnil 11/2

4th: Screaming Colours 18/1

5th: Early Doors 33/1

6th: Velvet Elvis 12/1

7th: Max Flamingo 10/1

8th: Champagne Platinum 33/1
