    1.45 - THE MIGHTY DON and SYKES - TMD does not have much in hand, but comes here in good form and ran a nice race at the festival. 25's looks fair. Sykes is another fair sort, who comes here in decent form and does go on the ground. Weight may stop him, but 40's looks a shade big.

    5.15 ( Grand National ) - Gone with 3 in the big one and can see them all giving me a run for my money -

    MILANSBAR at 33's
    ALPHA DES OBEAUX at 40's
    CARLINGFORD LOUGH at 40's

    I've somehow managed to pick out a few nice priced winners at Aintree so far, so posting today's selections will no doubt end that in spectacular fashion :p

    1.45 - RED INDIAN and JEANNOT DE NONANT
    2.25 - BLACK OP
    3.40 - PEARL SWAN
    5.15 - SEEYOUATMIDNIGHT, THE DUTCHMAN and RAZ DE MAREE
    6.20 - WILLIAM OF ORANGE and FINAL CHOICE

    I fancy there to be only around 10 finishers in the Grand National, but the only bookie offering odds are Bet365 who go 4/7 for UNDER 16, which looks a strong bet but a bit short for me, and Skybet who go 11/8 for UNDER 12, which is a bit near to what I think. If UNDER 16 was nearer evens I'd be all over that.

    As every year, I've staked too much and have fuck all chance of winning any of it back :leaving

    Carlingford Lough
    Warriors Tale
    Shantou Flyer
    Milansbar
    Bless the Wings

    If you could bet on one horse not to get around the course it should be Bless the Wings but I love the jockey so I'm hoping he can work a miracle. I can't remember the last time I picked the winner (got beaten by a nose in the Richie McLernon one 5 or 6 years ago at a big price) and I've already resigned myself to seeing none of my money again but a place would get me my dosh back so I'm kind of clinging to that hope.:thumb

    Quite pleased to see that having got my shortlist down to 3, they're all mentioned by the 3 of you on here, so I must be on the right lines. Raz de Marée, Milansbar and Shantou Flyer for me (and Captain Redbeard and Blaklion for Mrs RC)

    Went to check my Betway account and found that the bet was for under 14 finishers, not under 16 like I thought - there was only going to be one outcome, wasn't there? :banghead

    ffs!
