Fairyhouse Easter Festival betting tips – Janidil each-way value in Gold Cup

The feature Grade 1 on Easter Sunday, the 2m 4f Fairyhouse Gold Cup Novice Chase (17:00) is a lot more open than the betting suggests. It could be worth chancing Janidil each-way. The biggest price of three runners representing Willie Mullins, this seven-year-old by Indian Daffodil beat five subsequent winners on his bow over fences at Naas.

That form has clearly worked out well, then. Janidil faced an impossible task giving a 7lb sex allowance to stable companion Colreevy in the Grade 1 Faugheen Novice Chase at Limerick over Christmas. The winner is now four from four since switched to fences, and has twice defied a penalty after that result.

As Janidil was still going OK when he fell four out in the Flogas Novice Chase, it was too early to say what would’ve happened. The return to a sounder surface, on which he has winning hurdle form, looks a plus. Mark Walsh, the retained rider of owner JP McManus, prefers his other runner Andy Dufresne, but there is just 1lb between them on official figures.

I don’t think Asterion Forlonge is a trustworthy favourite at all. While his jumping has improved, multiple previous falls count against him. He also didn’t see the race out in the Marsh Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham last month, and it was there to be won with Envoi Allen taking an early tumble.

With Franco De Port also running well below par in the Arkle, it could pay to look beyond the market principals. Janidil is one of only two course winners in the line-up and his Albert Bartlett fifth remains strong form. He thus gets the vote at 12/1 with Betfair each-way.

Grand Paradis can continue progress

In the 2m 4f Grade 2 novice hurdle earlier on the card (15:50), Grand Paradis looks worth a wager. Trained by Denise Foster, this five-year-old grey gelding has won both a bumper and maiden hurdle at this venue. The son of Martaline always appealed as the type who would improve for stepping up in trip.

After beating subsequent winner Grand Bornand by nine lengths, he confirmed that with victory in Grade 3 company at Thurles. Grand Paradis bolted up there, so look well worth a crack at this level. Jack Kennedy, who is two from three aboard him, takes the ride once again.

There are some unexposed sorts in against him, notably Gentlemansgame on the downgrade and Frere Tuck, who is a great each-way alternative at 11/1 with bet365 in this. Given his course record and stamina, Grand Paradis may well be capable of giving weight to them. He’s 4/1 with William Hill for his hat-trick here.

Skyace solid each-way value in Mares Final

The other Grade 1 on Sunday that features in these Easter Festival betting tips is the 2m 4f Mares Novice Hurdle Championship Final (15:20). This is an open contest and punters had to go in quick for value on Atlantic Fairy, so the admirable Skyace looks a solid each-way alternative.

Since leaving Mullins for Shark Hanlon, the six-year-old daughter of Westerner has won four times from eight completed starts. Skyace sprung 66/1 and 28/1 shocks in black type races before a mid-winter break. She was then far from disgraced as a keeping on nine-length fourth to old rival Telmesomethinggirl at Cheltenham.

Skyace represents the best of that form. There’s no obvious reason why those re-opposing in-behind her, some who she meets on 5lb better terms, should turn the tables. It makes Skyace look a solid each-way bet at 8/1 with Betfair, and they pay four places on this race.

Echoes In Rain can follow-up

In the 2m Grade 2 novice hurdle (14:50), Echoes In Rain can follow-up on a win at this level last time out One of three in this race trained by Willie Mullins, this Authorized mare bring a 50 per cent strike over hurdles into this contest. Echoes In Rain can race keenly, but has obvious ability.

She made all the running to win at Naas when last in action, running out eight lengths ahead of Belfast Banter at the line. As the runner-up has since taken the Grade 3 County Hurdle, one of the devilishly difficult Cheltenham handicaps, that form looks very good.

Echoes In Rain does carry a penalty for that success, but may have run up to a higher mark than her official rating. With further progress assured, and Paul Townend again in the saddle, she is a 11/4 chance with William Hill for another win. Both Master McShee and Thedevilscoachman could give her plenty to think about.

Fairyhouse Easter Festival betting tips part 2 – Agusta Gold the best Irish Grand National bet

On Easter Monday, everything builds to the Grade A 3m 5f Irish Grand National (17:00). This is the Emerald Isle’s premier jumps staying handicap, so many have claims. I like Agusta Gold most of all, especially with Paul Townend taking the ride for the first time.

Now trained by Willie Mullins after leaving the care of his sister Maggie, this eight-year-old mare has plenty going for her. Agusta Gold always made the frame in seven starts as a novice last term. She has since showed the benefit of that experience by winning a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse in January.

The Irish Grand National trip should be no problem for Agusta Gold either. She was an unlucky runner-up in the official trial for this race at Punchestown last February. Her shrewd connections may have laid the daughter of Gold Well out for this. Agusta Gold is my top each-way pick at 10/1 with bet365, but there are others to consider.

Also on the shortlist are classy top-weight Latest Exhibition, course and distance winner Court Maid, Thyestes Chase scorer Coko Beach and the maiden Run Wild Fred. A notable gamble on another Mullins runner, Robin De Carlow, has also occurred with Rachael Blackmore an eye-catching jockey booking.

Fakir D’Oudairies fancied for Devenish Chase

The chief supporting race on Monday that we’ve got Easter Festival betting tips on is the 2m 4f Grade 2 Devenish Chase (16:20). Ratings topper Fakir D’Oudairies is a course and distance winner, so could resume winning ways. He’s also the youngest in line-up aged six and trained by Joseph O’Brien for McManus.

Connections have tried Fakir D’Oudairies over all sorts of trips, but I believe this is optimum. He has form figures of 12 over two-and-a-half miles. This Kapgarde gelding also has a decent record on yielding ground. There was no catching runaway winner Allaho in the Ryanair Chase at Cheltenham last time out. This is far easier.

I’ve often been critical of retained McManus rider Walsh, but he didn’t lie up with the pace on Fakir D’Oudairies and stayed on for second. That was a good tactical ride as many in the field pulled up. Now in calmer waters, I’m hoping this is finally the day for Fakir D’Oudairies, who is 11/8 with Betfred to get his head in front.

The Bosses Oscar can also go one better

Another Cheltenham Festival runner-up, The Bosses Oscar, may have what it takes to win now dropped back in trip for the 2m 4f Grade 2 contest best known as the Irish Strawberry Hurdle (15:50). Trained by Denise Foster, this six-year-old was a leading fancy for the Pertemps Final but bumped into a better handicapped horse.

That was Mrs Milner, who ran out five lengths too good for the Oscar gelding. Prior to that, The Bosses Oscar chased home subsequent Stayers’ Hurdle hero Flooring Porter in a graded Navan handicap. His last win came on ground described as yielding, and he gets at least that here.

The Bosses Oscar also has every chance of reversing back form with re-opposing rival French Dynamite from Thurles last season. He now meets that one on 7lb better terms, which should be more than enough to turn the tables. Kennedy is back aboard; so, at 4/1 with Boylesports, everything looks in place for a big run from The Bosses Oscar.

Teahupoo completes Easter Festival betting tips

And finally, it’s hard to look past Teahupoo for the 2m Grade 2 juvenile hurdle (14:40). Trained by Foster for Robcour, the Masked Marvel gelding is unbeaten in three career starts including tworcourse and distance successes. A French import, Teahupoo got the better of subsequent dual Newbury winner Good Ball over there before moving to Ireland.

Teahupoo bolted up by 15 lengths on his debut in the Emerald Isle. The runner-up, Druid’s Altar, confirmed the form with the third home, Autumn Evening, next time out. When last in action, Teahupoo took a Grade 3 at this venue by seven comfortable lengths. You can question what he’s beaten, but not the manner in which he has gone about it.

On all known form, Teahupoo looks capable of giving weight all-round here. Fred Winter winner Jeff Kidder still has 5lb to find with him on adjusted ratings. O’Brien runner Busselton now has first-time blinkers, but needs to do better than his Cheltenham performance. Teahupoo is simply the most solid option.
