Irish National Form Guide 2014

Irish Grand National Form Assessing the outcome of this race is a difficult task, particularly so because the race is often an open affair and quite regularly throws up an unexpected winner. Also it is run just a few weeks after the Cheltenham Festival and this year it comes just two weeks after the Aintree Grand National. Therefore it is often the case that the the field could change quite dramatically from the one that was originally declared.

Race Considerations

1. Look out for for horses coming from in form stables. This information will be included on out Irish Grand National tips page, but it is possible that we ourselves could miss something. 2008 winner, Hear the Echo had not shown any form himself before the race, but his stable had just begun to fire a few home.

2. Think about the horses that have ran in the race the year before and even the year before that. Sometimes, top trainers like their horses to have a good look at the race before laying them out for the race the following season.

3. The Irish National is usually won on soft ground so its imperative that any selections made can go on the ground.

4. Horses that have shown solid recent race form in the few weeks before the race have a better chance than those who have not.
