The Irish Grand National follows hot on the heels of the Aintree equivalent as a whole host of staying chasers head to Fairyhouse for the richest Jumps race in Ireland.

Who is the favourite to win the Irish Grand National 2022?

Gaillard Du Mesnil heads Paddy Power’s betting for the Irish Grand National 2022 despite the novice chaser failing to score from four runs over fences for Willie Mullins.

Farclas was scratched from the Aintree Grand National at the 48-hour declaration stage despite finishing fifth in the previous year’s renewal and was an impressive second in the Troytown last time out.

Max Flamingo, trained by sheep farmer Francis Casey, is also prominent in our betting after being targeted at the race since November last year.

How much prize money is on offer at the Irish Grand National 2022?

A €500,000 prize pot is up for grabs making the Irish Grand National 2022 the most lucrative renewal on the National Hunt calendar in Ireland. The winning horse will bag a cool €270,000 for connections.
