Irish Grand National odds: Intense Raffles and Nick Rockett lead Fairyhouse betting

We're all set for the 2024 renewal of the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse, with Nick Rockett currently at the top of the market for Willie Mullins.

Mullins has won the race twice before with Burrows Saint in 2019 and Grand National contender I Am Maximus in last year's race.

This year he has the favourite in Nick Rockett and Mullins is optimistic about his chances after opting to skip Cheltenham to focus on the Easter Monday race in Ireland.

After the seven-year-old finished second in a Grade 2 at Navan last time out, Mullins said: "He’s a novice and we kept him back from Cheltenham to come for this race. Everything is looking good except the weight as 11st 10lb is a lot for a novice around here. But everything else is positive about him."

Trainer Tom Gibney won the Irish Grand National with Lion Na Bearnai in 2012 and he has another strong chance on Monday afternoon in the form of Intense Raffles.

He has won twice at Fairyhouse already this year, but he will be ridden by JJ Slevin this time around in the absence of Daryl Jacob.

Irish Grand National Odds

(Odds will display when the market is available)

Yeah Man comes into race off the back of an impressive victory in the Grand National Trial at Haydock.

He should relish the heavier ground at Fairyhouse and Keith Donoghue will fancy his chances of a maiden Irish Grand National win.

Other challengers on Easter Monday include the veteran Any Second Now, who has finished second and third in the Grand National at Aintree within the last three years, and Where's Frankie, a four-time course winner.
