Irish Trained Horses

Irish trained horses have a strong record in recent runnings of the Grand National, with seven winners of the race since 2000 trained in the Emerald Isle. As such, punters are often keen to back the Irish horses given the country's strong connections with National Hunt racing and the belief that any horses heading across the Irish Sea to Aintree must be making the trip with a chance.

We of course had an Irish winner of the race last season with Tiger Roll claiming the victory for Gordon Elliott
