Can't see Blaklion winning given it was 10lb lower last year and came 4th.

I like Anibale Fly [have it in the work sweepstake too!] and Ucello Conti

No claret and blue runners , got to be a first in the National, I’ve always backed at least one before

So West Ham related I’ve done

Blaklion - used to drink there

Chase the spud- used to do that

And work related

Gas line boy - used to be corgi registered


So avoid them donkeys

My selection , ' Road To Riches ' has come down from 66/1 to 50/1 to 33/1 - I didn't put on my bet until 33/1 , ho hum , no one is tipping it , everyone says it's got no chance , ah well , as long as it doesn't fall at the first I'll be happy .

Dreamland for connections if it does win as it only got entered into the race recently after one of the others was withdrawn! He's been running pretty shockingly but anything is possible, especially if he can recapture his class form of a few years ago.

Didn't know that - I just backed because of ' a feeling ' , nothing else - it's form has been rubbish for the past 2 seasons - I've had a couple of winners of late in the National - Many Clouds @ 33/1 and Neptune Collonges @ 33/1 - going for the hatrick of 33/1s today . :)
