Age

Horses aged between 6 and 10 usually win the Irish Grand National. Older horses tend to run out of steam when chalenged strongly by their younger rivals and younger horses tend to lack experience in such a difficult race.

Weight

Horses carrying 11st 4lb and under are the ones to look at. Anything heavier would have to be exceptional and in possible in the same league as the Irish Grand National legends, Arkle and Desert Orchid.

Form

Horses that have shown good recent form, at least a top four finish, in the few weeks leading up to the race is worth a close look. It could be that the horse has been laid out for the race and is coming into form at just the right time for the Fairyhouse race on Easter Monday. 2014 Irish Grand National Form
