The annual Mascot Grand National at Huntingdon Racecourse takes place on Sunday and, once again, Rovers will be represented by Donny Dog.

Although at a distinct disadvantage to other mascots (due to his giant shoes) Donny Dog will be doing his best to get a creditable finish. The mascots will have to complete the 220 yards course, including hurdles.

Donny Dog is at 33/1 to win the race, although certainly not an outsider with many other mascots rated at 50/1 or above!

Other mascots taking part in the race are Chaddy The Owl (previous winner representing Oldham) and H’Angus the Monkey, the famous mascot of Hartlepool.

Come on Donny Dog!
