    That time of year again folks... :D

    Me, Garvivonnian (no idea how you pronounce it, but it's not that dissimilar to my name so thus must be good) got 12/1 yesterday... £1000 to win. or in the real world, £2 E/W. heh

    So then... I know it's inhumane, but it's the National, what's your tip??? :D

    Having only ever won once on the National... don't put any money on Direct Access ;)

    I was considering Garvivonnian and Ross Comm but resisted...

    A grand!? Good luck to you! I've only got £5 on! yes, I saw the white!

    Well, I got a 4th E/W on Nil Desperandum

    My mother picked the winner at 11/1... I'm going to start just taking whatever she does - after the day at Epsom where she came out £150 up just making £2 bets, I should have known! ;)

    Also - Endorse: The one that I always back.

    As usual, my £3 to win (see the How Cheap Are You thread) meant that my horse fell at the third. Another day! Hope everyone else did better.

    I've only ever bet on the Grand National twice – on both occasions my horse ended up being shot. After the second one, I decided to give it up as a bad idea. :eek:
