Grand National Sweepstake

Anyone fancy a flutter?
No money changing hands,just the satisfaction of knowing your horse won!
I'm going with Kilbeggan Blade.
Ah, vanman, you've been reading the D Tel today. I'll go for Cloudy Lane. I'd love it to be Olly Magern, because that one is about as nails as a horse can get, apart from the mighty Denman of course.

Magern just sets off like a rocket at the front and dares the others to try and break him, and they usually blow up trying, but 4m4f is too far for those tactics.

The National is OK, but there is a deal too much luck involved to make it a proper punter's race. It's not exactly the Gold Cup is it?
