Bank Holiday Mondays are one of life's greatest pleasures.

There you are, the usual Garfield head on you, complaining about Mondays week-in, week-out (we have no idea whether you love lasagne as well, but hear us out). All of a sudden, an extension to the weekend and you're all for it.

You know what'd make it even sweeter? A winner in the Irish Grand National.

Thankfully, Ladbrokes have delivered some tips right to us in order to give you the best shout at victory in the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse on Monday.

Fairyhouse Monday

It's the day of the big one, the Irish Grand National. Tiger Roll is heading to Aintree, but we have some other tips to tickle your fancy.

For an outright win, it's hard to look beyond Sempo.


The horse has been primed for this race seemingly for the last year, but there have been a few issues in the interim. Sempo has unseated his jockey in two of his last five starts, but his connections have sharpened him up by running him over two miles in his last two outings.


He'll relish the extreme test and the chance at good ground and he'll be the one to beat here.

TIP: Sempo - Fairyhouse Monday 17.00

If you're looking for something bigger, may we interest you in Opposites Attract?


Form shows that he's run well against big hitters like Latest Exhibition in previous races, and good ground here could see him improve further.

The trainer of Opposites Attract, Dermot McLoughlin, has a knack for getting the most out of staying chasers and he could run into the money at a huge price.

TIP: Opposites Attract - Fairyhouse Monday 17:00
