Rowleyfile Preview: Irish Grand National
Simon Rowlands analyses the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Monday and picks out his best bet.
If you ever feel your job is tough, then spare a thought for whoever ends up commentating on the Boylesports-sponsored Irish Grand National at 5 o’clock on Easter Monday at Fairyhouse.
As if picking out what happens to 30 runners over three miles and five furlongs, over a total of 24 fences, around the twists, turns and undulations of this rather idiosyncratic course, is not hard enough, a remarkable 12 of the runners (at the latest count) will be wearing Gigginstown colours and another five the silks of arch rival J P McManus.
At least that potential for confusion is not a consideration for anyone when trying to pick out a bet, although it may be once the race gets under way.
