Oh OK, Mon Mome is worth a bet (despite the weight) and King John's Castle (I think he's still running) is pretty high odds for a horse that finished second two years ago.
Means I have to put something on it.
should take some beating
They're just stage names, right? Like the commentary man might call a horse Bonny Prince William's Neckrash during the race, but back at the stable even just calls it Nick or Simon. Yeah?
I'm on a fucking roll
will take some licking
He's learning disabled (or whatever the appropriate term is these days), but every year he picks a horse that finished in the money with an either-way bet. It's like a gift.
BUT YOU'RE STILL WRONG.
This always happen at the Grand National. Every single time.

How to get a Liverpool winner
Grand National - so you want put your money
on a better hunch than just a nice name?
These are the facts you've got to know
before sticking your pin in the paper:
* No horse, jockey or trainer has won two
in a row since Red Rum
* It's rare for a horse carrying more
than 11st to win
* Greys and girls just don't really win
* No 7 year old horse has won since 1940 -
11 of the last 13 winners have been 9 or 10.
* Suits horses that like left-handed courses
(so good form at Cheltenham is useful)
* Only 2 of the last 10 winners won their
* Champion jockey Tony McCoy and top trainers
Paul Nicholls and Jonjo O'Neill have yet to win
* It's probably more fun to make a few small
bets rather than put all your money on one.
If your horse falls at the first fence, you've
got more than 9 minutes to keep watching ...
Q: What happens when you mix up your Viagra
A: It makes you crap in bed.
I fancy a few Arbor Supreme as said above...
State of Play... needs the ground to be good apparently so might need to stay dry and Paul Moloney is really underrate as a jockey in my opinion.
Probably put a couple of quid on King's John Castle too as had it when it came second and the odds are massive. Also Madison du Berlais i think got a good e/w. But there's loads. I think something between 16s and 20s will win.
The first and second favourites are way too short.
Ollie Magern is a lot better horse than those odds suggest...
Put a fiver on a couple around 20s and couple of quid on some longer ones e/w.
Got a tenner on State of Play, got Arbor Supreme in a lucky 15 with someothers over the course of the meeting.
So will probably put a bit on Madison, King Johns Castle, Ollie Magern. And then maybe a fiver on Niche Market.
My Will is a bit long looking at it too.
