As some people may know on Saturday it is the Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree.

Would anyone be interested in taking part in a possible sweepstake where you get a horse chosen at random?

i'm not going to take part in this, only because i do actually bet on the national- and over the last few years i've come extremely close to winning (all my horses in the top 10 finishers), just not close enough.

it's the 1 sporting event i really look forward to and i know that sooner or later i'm going to choose the winner

It does feel weird, i'd assume it's just their attempt to increase the audience figures somehow~

The full list of runners has been announced biggrin.gif

I would prefer it to go back to the traditional 3:45 slot. It is weird to have the race at 5:15 should have been left to 4:15.
