O'Brien sets out to Lord it . .

AIDAN O'Brien has at last broken his overseas duck - and now he's gunning for the greatest race of all.

Record-breaker O'Brien has his first ever runner in the Grand National on Saturday with Life of a Lord which is second top weight for the Grand National.

Michael Clancy's ten-year-old has a common bond with the last Irish trained National winner - they both won the Kerry National.

And since the Lord's storming success in Listowell last September, he has been prepared with only one race in mind.

After Urubande provided O'Brien with his first ever winner in Britain at Cheltenham, the trainer's confidence is sky high as he bids to scoop another big festival prize.

Life of a Lord has been the silent partner in Ireland's three-pronged national challenge. But as the ground dried up dramatically this week, his chances improved considerably.
