Super Easter Sunday in The Premiership  Looking back firstly this week there were a number of magnificent performances at the Cheltenham Festival last week. Master Minded excelled in the Queen Mother Chase and is now as short as 1/1 to repeat his win in the same race next year. It’s Tidal Bay at 5/1 and 10/1 bar those two.   Denman was ever so impressive in winning the Gold Cup and is now a 6/4 chance to repeat his win next year. Kauto Star is 7/2 and it’s 16/1 bar.   This weekend the Irish Grand National takes centrestage on Easter Monday. Odds as follows: 5/1 Royal County Star, 7/1 Cailin Ailinn, Old Berry, 10/1 Pomme Tiepy, 12/1 bar.   In soccer it’s a Super Easter Sunday of Premiership action. Odds as follows: 10/11 Manchester United v 3/1 Liverpool; Draw 9/4. Chelsea 1/1 v Arsenal 9/4; Draw 9/4.   In gaelic games, NFL: Dublin 4/9 v Monaghan 9/4; Draw 7/1. NHL: Limerick 5/4 v Galway 8/11; Draw 11/1. Bet of the week Last week our punt on Denman to win the Gold Cup at 9/4 came good so  with winnings of €45 we are now ahead by a handsome €71 for the year to date. This weekend we are staking our €20 on a draw at Old Trafford between Manchester United and Liverpool, at 9/4.
