The race isn't one of my favourites, so I only have a few small stake bets on it. It' s all for fun, to be fair.
I think what I will do is do the picking names out a hat thing like we have done in the past. My nephew won one year and he's going to be here today.
Maybe he can repeat the feat.
Speaking of repeating - I think I have only ever won a Grand National bet once in all the years of doing one.
That's not good, is it?
Now you don't need to ask why the National doesn't rank in my short list of favourite races.
