    The Grand National

    Well, I'm kind of covering all my options today:

    Gingembre E/W
    Robbo to be placed
    Less than 10 finishers
    You're Agoodun to be first Pipe finisher
    The winner to be Irish trained
    The winning distance to be over 10 lengths
    Carbury Cross E/W
    Ballinclay King E/W
    Goguenard E/W
    Djeddah E/W
    The 1st 2 to be from (in any order) - Ad Hoc, Youlneverwalkalone, Shotgun Willy, Chives, Goguenard
    Ad Hoc E/W


    Surely one of those will win?!

    My last Grand National winner was my first - Foinavon in 1967. Got it in a sweep - it won at 100-1. I won 10 on the sweep, but didn't have a bet on it in the race itself.

    No, they were all small stakes. I got a couple (Irish, lengths) but actually missed out on the winner by 5 seconds (as I put on the bet the tape went up and it wasn't accepted )
