Grand National

I don't normally bet directly on the Grand Nartional. I used to put my £1 into the works sweepstake.

Today I tried 3 bets:

Point Barrow - fell at the first

Clan Royal - 11th

Homer Wells - Pulled up.

Anybody do any better? Who had Silver Birch?

All over now.

for her. A tenner on Silver Birch to win. It won, she went bananas with excitement, our son phoned to say that somehow he hadn't managed to place the bet.

It wasn't my wife's week - mobile phone stolen at the start of it and this at the end.

FE, what a shame, 33-1 as well.

I remember a Lottery Syndicate Manager who had to tell his members that he didn't get the tickets in on time. So their expected win (which in fact would have been the jackpot) wasn't. I would have to face that. I run a Lottery Syndicate but I have subscribed to Camelot. So I don't have any worries about not being in the running.

Read before you post.

"I would have to face that." should have been:

"I wouldn't like to have to face that."
