Default Aintree Grand National

One of the sports I really miss from the UK is horseracing.

Luckily CBC is showing 30 minutes of the race in Canada tomorrow afternoon. Think I might even place a bet so I have something to cheer on.

Will this finally be A P McCoy's year to win the big one?

Which horse does anyone else fancy?

Niche Market 16/1
Comply or die,currently 20/1 outsider, but came 2nd and 3rd last two years.
Don't blame me if I'm wrong,I'm no expert,but then the National has always been a bit of a lottery.The housewives always seem to pick the winner!

Well I did put some money on Don't Push It at 20/1 so got a good return for my money.

Also picked the 4th and 6th placed finishers so not a bad afternoon!

My Big brother called this morning and spoke about the Grand national (he is in Liverpool so you live and breath it for the day) he told me that one horse refused to even start the race !!!! was very funny to watch by all accounts and the one that held back for most of the race won !!!!!!!
