Pre Race Comments :

The Irish have dominated this race. Irish trained horses have accounted for 90% of those finishing in the first three, winning all seven runnings of the race and claiming 12 of the 14 places. This race has been running since 2005 with the favourite winning just twice. Dont look too far down the betting though, the winner has only come from outside the top 3 only once ( A New Story 25/1 in 2010 ). This year Wille Mullins trains the two at the top of the market, Scots Irish and Uncle Junior. We have best odds, entries and weights for the Glenfarclas Cross-Country Handicap Steeple Chase 2012.
