      Anybody got a list of the horses yet?

      Next Saturday, don't forget it. It's the only horse race I take any notice of, it's always a good laugh.

      I always pick horses that have some meaning to me so I'm gonna pick My Will (lucky he's the favourite at the mo) and Flintoff, I love me cricket so have to put a quid on that horse.

      There is usually a pull out in the daily papers on the Wednesday before the race, so good luck DLS, I have been lucky in this race for the past 5 years , getting at least two of the horses in the first four.

      I like to watch the fillies going past ours on the Friday.  :f_whistle:

      You're right though, it's always a good buzz.

      Here's a list of the runners. I'm gonna do Iron Man again - bit of a reference to Tommy Smith. 100-1 but you never know.

      First Grand National where I haven't been working in Aintree and having half an hour thrown on to my journeys so I'm sure I will enjoy this one a bit more!

      Haven't been there for a good 5 years or so now, I always think about going but it seems to come round before I know it.

      Might go for a few that I feel are quite apt:

      Eurotrek (got to be a Liverpool related on that)
      Cant Buy Time
      and one for the forum
      Comply Or Die

      A few people in my college are working there, glass collecting. They've got a few more people they need to get to do it with them so hopefully i'll have a bit of work going too :)

      I've put some money on Butlers Cabin (who I reckon you've backed as well mate). Also done Big Fella Thanks, Snowy Morning and Fleet Street as an outsider (i like the red and white  ;))

      Butlers Cabin is McCoy's horse Kenny mate, so I'd stay well clear. He still hasn't won the National.

      My Will - the horse I've gotta pick just for the name - is fave at the moment and is being rode by Ruby Walsh, two time National winner. So I'm quite pleased with that choice :laugh:

      Lately I have been taking some very strong painkillers and besides doing their job they also seem to have
      given me the intellect of a spam fritter! I was asked for a tip for the National as I have been known to follow the horses (we have lovely roses) anyway I get online and google a list of national runners to pick a likely winner from.

      I then trundle into work yesterday giving a good impression of Forrest Gump on a day out and tell anyone who will listen that Numbersixvalverde is my tip for the top. Today I have stopped the Strong painkillers because not only is Numbersixvalverde not going to win the National he is not even running in it ! It seems Numbersixvalverde was forced to retire in January 2009 due to an ongoing leg injury, and the horse had even been sidelined due to injury since the 2007 Grand National!

      unfortunately the list I had Googled was from 2006 when the horse actually won it and so my local bookmakers will be pestered tomorrow by people trying to place bets on a horse that hasn't even seen a course for the last two years ::)

      After that tale my actual tips would be

      Rambling Minster

      Brooklyn Brownie

      Devon Loch ;)
