Latest Exhibition And The Big Dog BoyleSports Irish Grand National Favs
Latest Exhibition and The Big Dog are battling it out to go off favourite for the BoyleSports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Easter Monday after final declarations were revealed on Friday morning.
We have given cash back to punters who backed Tiger Roll this week after connections decided to send the dual Grand National winner to the Aintree Bowl, leaving two co-favourites at the head of a highly competitive market at 7/1.
The Big Dog, a Grand National trial winner at Punchestown in February, has shorted into 7/1 from 9/1 and joins the Paul Nolan-trained Latest Exhibition as co-favourites, while Thyestes runner-up Run Wild Fred is in the mix for Denise Foster at 8/1 alongside Joseph O’Brien’s Sempo also at 8/1.
Willie Mullins broke his BoyleSports Irish Grand National duck in style with a 1-2-3 in the most recent renewal and his best chance is currently being given to recent recruit Agusta Gold, who is now also an 8/1 shot having opened up at 14/1 last week.
We are now paying seven places each-way on the race with the tape to be lifted at 5.00pm on Monday.
It really is all to play for with plenty of eyes on that €400,000 prize fund!
