2017 Irish Grand National Trends

Staged at Fairyhouse racecourse the 2017 Irish Grand National is run over a trip of 3m5f with 24 fences to be jumped.

The gruelling contest is always staged on Easter Monday (17th April 2017), while several Irish Grand National winners have also won the Aintree Grand National, but none in the same season – Bobbyjo and Numbersixvalverde are recent examples of this.

For example, did you know? The last 14 winners carried 10-13 or less in weight, while 12 of the last 14 successful horses were Irish-bred and returned a double-figure price in the betting. In fact, we’ve seen just one winning favourite in the last 14 renewals and the last horse to win with more than 11-0 on its back was Commanche Court (2000) – he carried 11-4!
