Horse racing tips: Irish Grand National trends – we help you find the winner of the Fairyhouse feature live this Monday


THE Irish Grand National poses a weighty problem.

Only the excellent Our Duke has managed to win this with more than 11st on his back in the past decade — although not that many have tried.

But a trend is a trend so cross out Tout Est Permis, Dounikos, Jury Duty, Pairofbrowneyes, Total Recall, Shattered Love, A Toi Phil, Acapella Bourgeois, Any Second Now and Monbeg Notorious.

There has been no winner older than 10 in the past decade so Isleofhopendreams, Forever Gold and Measureofmydreams go.

Finishing in the first four last time out is a positive so Minella Rocco, General Principle, Auvergnat, Blow By Blow, Valseur Lido, Woods Well, Out Sam, Gun Digger, Whisperinthebreeze, Kimberlite Candy, Shady Operator and Arkwrisht.

A win over at least 3m is important so C’est Jersey, Roaring Bull and Bellow Mome.

That gets us down to a decent shortlist of just Snugsborough Benny and Burrows Saint.

There is very little between the pair either on the trends or on form. They are both backable and the wise move is to split your stake between the two.

But for one bet SNUGSBOROUGH BENNY won well around here last time and that course experience could just given him the edge.
