Irish Grand National favourite not certain to make the line-up

| 21.04.2011

Ladbrokes are offering non-runner no bet on the ante-post Irish Grand National betting leaving punters certain of a run for their money with 53 horses still entered for the Fairyhouse showpiece on Easter Monday .

51 horses remain on the entry list for the Irish Grand National and with only 25 entries guaranteed a run, Gordon Elliott needs seven runners weighted higher than his Beautiful Sound to withdraw for the 6/1 Irish Grand National favourite to run.

The final declaration stage for the race is Friday and punters will find out whether the early doors gamble on Beautiful Sound will stand.

Now Ladbrokes have gone non-runner no bet for the Irish Grand National all ante-post bets are safe and this is the perfect time for punters to find the best value in the Irish Grand National betting.

Welsh Grand National winner Synchronised heads the weights at 11st 12lb and is 16/1 to carry top weight to victory on Monday.

10th in the Grand National, Backstage still holds his Irish Grand National entry and after being highly fancied at Aintree punters can get 14/1 on Gordon Elliott’s nine-year-old winning.

Should Beautiful Sound make the entry list, Gordon Elliott will also saddle Ballymak (25/1) in the race as he searches for his first ever winner of the Irish Grand National

Skippers Brig and Hello Bud are other Irish Grand National runners that ran in the Grand National and both are available at 20/1 to win at Fairyhouse should they stand their ground.

Friday will be an interesting day in the Irish Grand National betting with the odds sure to be affected by any final withdrawals, and should Beautiful Sound not get a run, it will be tight at the top with Prince Erik (10/1), Quantativeeasing (12/1) and Sunnyhillboy (12/1) vying for favouritism.

A £10 stake on Backstage winning the Irish Grand National would return £150. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free horse racing bet worth up to £30.
