Irish Grand National Tips & Best Odds

Since the turn of the century, just two winners of the Irish Grand National have been carrying over 11st and both of these, namely Commanche Court and Our Duke had more than enough class in order for them to appear in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham festival in later years. To be fair, none of the runners carrying over 11st look to be anywhere near that standard in today’s renewal of the Irish Grand National and as such, we’ll be looking to those with lower weights in our shortlist from the thirty starters.

Sempo looks to be something of an unknown quantity and while the Joseph O’Brien runner is potentially high-class, odds of around 12/1 for a horse which is still a maiden over fences is far too short. Indeed at odds of as much as 16/1, there’s plenty of value to be had in Robin De Carlow which will be under the guidance of 2021 Cheltenham Festival top-jockey Rachael Blackmore this afternoon, the Willie Mullins’ runner having had 547 days on the sidelines.

His last outing was a win over recent Champion Chase victor Put The Kettle On back in October 2019 at Tipperary and in fairness Mullins certainly wouldn’t be pitching him in the Irish Grand National unless he was confident that he would do himself and Blackmore justice.
