BoyleSports Irish Grand National Chase (Fairyhouse, 5:00pm - Monday 5th April)
KEY STATS AND TRENDS
The last ten winners were aged between six and ten. Those aged 11 or older were 0-31, though most were big prices.
Eight of the last ten winners carried 10-08 or less.
Days Since Last Run:
Seven of the last ten winners ran between 22 and 42 day earlier. Those who had a very recent outing (within 14 days) were 0-24. Those absent for more than 90 days were 0-17.
Only 12 mares ran but two of them won for a profit of £65.00 to a £1 level stake at SP.
Backing all runners ridden by a jockey claiming an allowance would have found three winners from 66 bets for a profit of £36.00.
Last time out winners were just two from 52 (-£11.00). Those who ran over hurdles last time were just one from 40 (-£27.00). Those who prepper in a Grade 1 were just one from 23 (-£17.50). Those who started as favourite in their prep race were just one from 43 (-£36.00). Horses who ran at Cheltenham last time were three from 58 for a profit of £23.00.
One winner made all and seven more were prominent throughout. Only two horses scored under patient tactics. Six of the eight front-running/prominent winners were ridden patiently in their prep race, which makes it difficult to predict the likely tactics though it’s certainly a useful pointer for in-running betting.
Backing horses who were beaten under patient tactics in a chase last time, aged ten or younger, whose prep race came within the past six weeks, found five winners from 64 bets for a profit of £64.00 to a £1 level stake at SP. Those who carried 10-08 or less were four from 41 for a profit of £78.00.
