With just under a week until the Boylesports Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse, another market mover has occurred in the past 24 hours.
Dessie Hughes last won the Irish Grand National in 2003 when Timbera romped to victory and now one of his stable entries, Golden Wonder, is the latest horse to see support and is now priced at 16/1 having been installed at 33/1.
Jim Dreaper is set to be represented by two runners who have already seen support over the past week. Goonyella is now 14/1 from 20/1 whilst Los Amigos is priced at 16/1 having been installed at 25/1. A special price of 7/1 is available with Boylesports for Jim Dreaper to train the Irish Grand National winner.
Lion Na Bearnai, who won the race in 2012, is currently priced at 20/1 to repeat the success whilst the Conor O’Dwyer-trained Folsom Blue has seen support and is now 20/1 having been installed at 25/1.
Liam Glynn, PR Executive at Boylesports said “Golden Wonder is the latest horse to be supported and we have laid some shrewd money on him. Goonyella remains the biggest race liability with My Murphy also well supported from 20/1 into his current 14/1 price.”
He added “With just under a week to go to the race, no doubt we will see further gambles taking place but certainly the market has been lively since it was priced up on Monday 7th April and this is mainly down to our relaxation on Ante Post rules and our 5 places offer.”
