VIDEO: BoyleSports' Leon Blanche on their Joseph O'Brien-Cheltenham offer and the prospect of the best ever Irish National


Leon Blanche of BoyleSports believes Joseph O'Brien's Edwulf will have a live chance in either the four-mile National Hunt Chase or the three-mile RSA Chase.

BoyleSports are offering 7/4 odds on the 23-year-old training a winner at next week's festival and Edwulf appears to be his best chance.

A facile winner at Naas recently, Edwulf is 7/1 with BoyleSports for the National Hunt Chase and 10/1 for the RSA (prices subject to change).

Last year's Triumph Hurdle winner Ivanovich Gorbatov is entered in both the Coral Cup and the County Hurdle.

His Cheltenham team is likely to be completed by juvenile hurdlers Landofhopeandglory (20/1 for the Triumph and 10/1 for the Fred Winter) and Zig Zag (20/1 for the Fred Winter), along with West Coast Time (14/1) in the Champion Bumper.

Blanche also believes that there will be an influx of horses from the UK for the €500,000 BoyleSports Irish Grand National.

The fact that most Gigginstown horses are bypassing Aintree will also mean a stringer renewal of the Fairyhouse showpiece.
