It’s that time of the year again when offices and homes across the country pick a random horse from a list of 40 and enjoy a flutter – on the 10th of April it’s Grand National day.
In the office Jenny goes for the funniest name, Ann picks by the colour of the silks while I go on my secret system (that has failed to produce a winner in four long years). This year Jenny, for reasons best kept secret, has opted for The Package, Ann has gone for Ollie Magern while my system tells me this could be Tony McCoy’s year on Don’t Push It. So how do you choose your National horse?
The National at Aintree also signifies the start of a fantastic Spring and Summer season of racing across Britain and Ireland and we have all you need to make sure you look tip top when looking for tips.
Do let us know if you manage to back a winner this weekend and I might be able to improve my secret horse-picking system for next time…
