The Grand National is coming up in April...who's up for it?
Same rules as before etc etc.

The comp runs from Thursday 3rd - Saturday 5th. (3 days).

There will be 2 prizes, Winner & Runner up.
Winner = 10k
Runner up. = 5k




All you have to do is to Select a horse in every race over the 3 day festival.
And your selections for the day should be on here in time for the first race.
Once you have submitted your selections they cannot be changed.
Any problems, then PM me.

Non runners: Unless there is time to change the selection, then you will be on the favorite at 1/2 the points.

Dead heats: 1/2 the points.


1st. = 10 points
2nd. = 6 points
3rd. = 4 points
4th. = 2 points
5th. = 1 point

Races with 4 or less runners win only.
Races with 5-6-7 runners, 1st & 2nd only.
Races with 8 -15 runners 1st 2nd 3rd only.
Races with 16+ handicaps 1st 2nd 3rd 4th.
This year i will be going with the Paddy Power results... this means there could be extra places!

Everyday you can NAP one of your selectons, this means that if it wins then you will get DOUBLE the points for it!!

Who ever has the most points at the end of the Festival is the winner!
Prizes for this competition are, the winner will get 10000v and the runner up 5000v.

since they made the fences easier to jump about 5 years ago meaning the quality of horse entering the race has improved ( hardly any out of the handicap now ) it's been almost impossible to pick the winner of this race

before that it wasn't difficult at all, I think between 1992 and 2006 I had the winner 9 times, none since 2007

The most interesting runner for me this year is Double Seven, trained by Martin Brassil ( won 2007 race with Numbersixvalverde ) , owned by J P McManus, on a good weight of 10-11, likes good ground. It's 33/1 right now and although J P Mcmanus still has 7 entries I think this is the one A P McCoy will be on. I have a small EW on it already.
