So the big day has arrived.
Who are we backing? Talking about the Grand National to the ill informed
Totally ill informed here at your service.
I chucked a few bets on the 515 race late this morning.
This thread needs @Jammy 07
And if Jammy is here we're gonna need @Tobes too
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.’

my money is on Takingrisks, horse 19 to be required to be put down first
Ive got that one on a each way.
Liked the name
Cloth caps the favourite right?
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.
I went to the horse races at York once, right up there with the worst days of my life ever.
Back in 2011? I think. Neptune Colonge was it?
Yep. Has a favourites chance too. Good value at 11/2, if it goes any shorter, not so much.
I’m on 7 and 14
^^^got knocked back by a pissed up hen party, did his bollocks on the nags
Probably the year I told her to grow up and bet on a black one.
surprised your fave wasn’t blacklion coz of your black roots tbh
I got it at 5-1 last night
Is that better?
Fosse gonna take this personally bro. You know how delicate he is about his roots
Think I care less about this than Prince Philip dying. Wasn't sure that was possible tbh.
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.
