    When was the last time a grey horse won?
    Asking for my wife who puts a fiver on one every year because ‘no one ever seems to bet on the grey ones. Aaaaw.’

    Not a fan of it TBH, so won’t be placing any bets. My sons girlfriend owns stables and loves horses. She is really anti “the national” due to horse injuries, often requiring them to be destroyed.

    Yep. Has a favourites chance too. Good value at 11/2, if it goes any shorter, not so much.

    <laugh> No. Fractionally worse.

    Still a decent enough bet though. Was 9/2 during the week, I’d never back anything shorter than that for The National because any winner is going to need a fair slice of luck.
