Monbeg Genius will compete at Grand National 

Monbeg Genius will be allowed to race in the forthcoming Grand National.

The British Horseracing Authority's confirmed it can compete despite a restraint order placed on the assets of its owners, the Isle of Man-based Baroness Michelle Mone and her husband Doug Barrowman. 

Funds linked to the couple have been frozen, as a National Crime Agency investigation into PPE firm Medpro continues.

According to the Financial Times, about £75million of assets, including a townhouse in Belgravia, London and an estate in the Isle of Man, have either been frozen or restrained following an application by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
