Fairyhouse race on Saturday with a pair of Grade 2s headlining the seven race programme.

The Grade 2 Winning Fair Juvenile Hurdle starts off proceedings whilst the Grade 2 At The Races Chase is set for 2.35.

It'll be the main track in use on Saturday and the going is currently described as heavy, soft in places.

On Wednesday Fairyhouse will hold another meeting – on the inside track – and it is described as heavy there.

Will there be another Irish winner at Aintree?

A lot has been said recently about the fact that the Irish contingent at Cheltenham tend to stoke up the fires of Anglo-Irish needle with their flag waving and chest beating due to our incredible success in recent years. As pointed out previously, this is nothing more than a bit of harmless fun that some folk on both sides of the Irish Sea take a little too seriously.
