Irish Grand National Odds - Our Duke The Favourite

The Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse takes place on Easter Monday each season and is one of the highlights on the calendar. It is run over a stamina sapping trip of 3m5f at the track and has been won by some of the best staying chasers in recent memory over the last few years. It is fair to say that the race does live in the shadow of the Aintree version but horses that run well at Fairyhouse will more often than not, be aimed towards Liverpool later in their careers.

A number of Irish Grand National winners have gone onto to win the Aintree Grand National later in their careers with Bobbyjo and Numbersixvalverde the two most recent examples. There is no doubt though that the two most famous winners of the Irish National are Arkle in 1964 and Desert Orchid in 1990 with both considered among the greatest chasers of all time.
