Mayo have been installed as 1/33 favourites in some quarters to get off to a winning start next Sunday but manager James Horan has no interest in bookmaker’s odds and is approaching next weekend’s opener with caution.

“Some of the favourites in the championship haven’t been doing so well so far,” said a cautios Horan, “If you’re not right, or if you’re a fraction off, anyone can beat anyone. We’ve seen that with Clare getting into a Munster Final, a rampant Sligo beating a Galway team that knocked out Roscommon. Some results don’t make sense if you try and analyse them.

“We were happy with our consistency during the National League and we need that kind of consistency and we need to make sure we’re constantly improving. Hopefully over the last eight weeks that’s happened.”
