2019 Irish Grand National Betting Tips, Predictions & Odds (Fairyhouse - 22.4.2019)
The Irish Grand National is the traditional highlight of Fairyhouse’s Easter Monday card. Like its Aintree counterpart, this race has the most prize money of any jumps race in its home country – €500,000 in total, with €270,000 going to winning connections.This post contains our 2019 Irish Grand National betting preview with free predictions, tips, betting trends, best odds, free bets and no deposit bonuses to use on horse racing!


Easter Monday's Boylesports Irish Grand National is one of the most prestigious races in the Irish jumps calendar with €500,000 in prize money on offer for this race. Just like the British equivalent, the combination of a massive field, a stamina sapping trip and 24 fences normally makes picking the winner of the Irish Grand National a very difficult task.

Staged at Fairyhouse racecourse on Easter Monday, the 2019 Irish Grand National is run over a trip of 3m5f with 24 fences to be jumped.  It is run right-handed, and finishes with a run-in of around three furlongs, going slightly uphill.

And now we'll take a closer look at this year's Irish Grand National and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail.

  • Paddy Power Betting BonusPairofbrowneyes  10/1Bet
PAIROFBROWNEYES fell in this race last year when sent off as a 13/2 favourite. Since then, he disappointed at Leopardstown and Gowran but was a winner last time out when scoring at Naas.

  • Bet365 Betting BonusJury Duty 12/1Bet
JURY DUTY disappointed at the Aintree Grand National last month as he unseated Robbie Power on the 18th fence. He went to Aintree in fine form, having won on his previous two outings at Down Royal and Far Hills.

  • Ladbrokes Betting BonusAny Second Now  8/1Bet
ANY SECOND NOW impressively won the Kim Muir Chase at the 2019 Cheltenham Festival and could improve even more for stepping-up in trip. The negative is that he is set to carry more than 11-0’s and is rated higher than nine of the last 10 Irish Grand National winners.

  • Coral betting bonusTotal Recall  16/1Bet
TOTAL RECALL finished six lengths behind Cheltenham Gold Cup winenr Al Boum Photo as the pair returned to action at Tramore. Prior to that, he was travelling nicely in mid-division in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham until a race-ending error at the fourth-last.

  • BetVictor Betting BonusIsleofhopendreams  25/1Bet
ISLEOFHOPENDREAMS has pulled-up on his first two outings of the New Year. but then bounced back to top form with another solid second at Naas, where only Pairofbrowneyes was good enough to see off his stablemate. He produced the finest form of his career in last years February’s Grand National Trial, just a head behind General Principle here at Fairyhouse and second again at the Punchestown Festival.

  • Ladbrokes Betting BonusBurrows Saint  10/1Bet
BURROWS SAINT may have been underestimated by the handicapper following two impressive wins in novice chases at Gowran Park and Limerick. A mark of 137 looks on the lenient side, that's why he's one of the most backed entries.

  • Unibet Betting BonusSnugsborough Benny 16/1Bet
SNUGSBOROUGH BENNY is a lightly-raced chaser that has put in some eye-catching performances over the last 12 months. He landed the Guinness Galway Blazers Handicap Chase at last summer's Galway Races. After two relatively uninspiring runs over the winter period, he warmed up for a tilt at the Irish Grand National with an impressive win at Fairyhouse back in February.

  • Betfair Sportsbook BonusBellow Mome 25/1Bet
BELLOW MOME proved his well-being when third in the Leinster National behind Pairofbrowneyes and Isleofhopeanddreams, so there’s plenty of ours with the credentials to run a big race.

  • William Hill Betting BonusGeneral Principle 22/1Bet
GENERAL PRINCIPLE, last year’s winner of the Irish Grand National, he fell just halfway in the Aintree counterpart few weeks ago when still in contention. He’s just a few pounds higher than last year though and can't be underestimate.

  • Betway Betting BonusGun Digger 20/1Bet
GUN DIGGER was noted running well when falling in the National Hunt Chase at the Cheltenham Festival. He has run some solid races in novice chases over shorter trips for Gordon Elliott this season.

  • Boylesports Betting BonusTout Est Permis 10/1Bet
TOUT EST PERMIS for trainer Noel Meade is on a four-timer following wins at Galway, Navan and Thurles. This trip is an unknown for the grey gelding and it could be an handicap.

  • BetVictor Betting BonusWhisperinthebreeze 25/1Bet
WHISPERINTHEBREEZE has run three strong races since Christmas, starting with a runner-up run behind Gun Mortal at Leopardstown, finishing 2nd once more at Punchestown and winning well by three lengths back at Leopardstown in February. He fell at Cheltenham last month and his weight of 10st 3lbs is more than manageable.

  • Boylesports Betting BonusC'Est Jersey 20/1Bet
C'EST JERSEY had the misfortune of running into the outstanding Duc des Genievres last time, but he is short of experience – and possibly stamina – for the task at hand. He finished 1¾ lengths second of 24 to Meri Devie in Ballymore Handicap Hurdle at Punchestown last year.

  • William Hill Betting BonusMinella Rocco 40/1Bet
MINELLA ROCCO has been pulled up on his last two starts. If running to anywhere near the level of form he showed when second in the 2017 Gold Cup on good ground, he will be a serious contender.

  • Sportingbet Betting BonusAuvergnat 33/1Bet
AUVERGNAT won the prestigious Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown over Christmas but pulled up in the Cross Country race at Cheltenham Festival last time out.

  • Betway Betting BonusShattered Love 25/1Bet
SHATTERED LOVE disappointed in the Cheltenham Gold Cup (reportedly suffered from post-race ataxia) after she finished 1½ lengths second of 5 to Min in John Durkan Memorial Chase at Punchestown in December

  • Ladbrokes Betting BonusValseur Lido  66/1Bet
VALSEUR LIDO finished a respectable 33¼ lengths tenth of 40 to Tiger Roll in Grand National at Aintree last time out. Once rated 169 he will run on Monday off 141
