A very difficult race this year from a betting perspective. My advice is, dont go overboard. If you really want a bet, then pick one with a pin and put what you can afford to lose, as an each way bet. Me, I'm having a small e/w bet on Livingstonebramble, now available at 100/1. (Not a tip, :-)
Fruit Bat. Very sensible too.. That's what we normally do too. A family sweepstake and tickets at 50p each, winner takes all. That way we know the money has gone to a good cause. (Saturday night's beer money).
