Mount Ida Odds Cut To Give Davy Russell His First BoyleSports Irish Grand National Title
Very few races elude Davy Russell, but the BoyleSports Irish Grand National is one of them with punters getting him and Mount Ida to win the 150th running of this spectacular race.
Mount Ida unseated her rider Denis O’Regan at the last fence at the Aintree Grand National so if that race hasn’t taken too much out of her then a bold showing is expected.
We have cut the Gordon Elliott trained mare into 16/1 from 20/1 in the betting following the declarations on Friday morning
…with the Cullentra trainer declaring twelve runners for the event.
The sponsors, who are offering a prize fund totalling €500,000, slashed the odds on Gaillard Du Mesnil winning the Fairyhouse showpiece in half from 12/1 from 6/1 earlier this week, making him the new favourite ahead of Max Flamingo and Farclas at 8/1.
The Ciaran Murphy trained Enjoy D’allen is 14/1 from 16/1 along while the Peter Fahy trained Mister Fogpatches is 25/1 from 33/1.
