Not normally a horse betting man, but normally stick a couple of quid on when the National comes around.

Anyone else having a flutter or know of any (semi decent) tips?

On His Own and Teaforthree will be my main 2 i think and maybe quel espirit as my token rank outsider just in case.

Victor Chandler are paying out on 6 places as well, so plenty of chance to make some money.

the best way i could see of doing it is taken 40 peoples names from here and then adding them to something like
RANDOM.ORG - List Randomizer
which will then give a random order (1 through to 40) - then assign the number that each person is to the same horse number

or, make a list of 40 people on here 1 - myboxlife, 2 - redcat1 3 - kazer etc and then put all the horses into the randomizer and then that will spit them out in a random order. which ever comes out at number 1 give that to myboxlife, the 2nd horse goes to the 2nd person on the list etc

Happy with either, it's just whether we can get 40 heads, or even 20, and give each 2 horses, and collect the entry, this all in time before it's too late.

Not much interest in a sweepstake then ?

Maybe a mention in General Chat might get a few involved

Think we're a bit late for a sweepstake :(.

Colbert Station, Chicago Grey, Balthazar King, and Mr Moonshine, £5 E/W on each.

Gonna pop down the road and have a few quid on On His Own, then a few quid e/w on an outsider.

O/T but just watched a recording of Sprinter Sacre from yesterday. 2 and a half miles this time.

Another awesome performance. The Frankel of the jumps world at the moment.

Wonder if he could stretch another 3/4 mile in a couple years.....

For those that haven't seen it, free £5 bet with BetButler from the Daily Mail (no payment info needed).
BetButler & Daily Mail

I used the above free £5 bet on Balthazar King, and signed up to Betfair through Quidco and put the following on:
£5 on Seabass (to win)
£10 on Cappa Bleu (e/w)
£10 on Teaforthree (e/w)

Due to a misadvertised offer with Betfair, deposited £10 then withdrawn £10 already, hopefully got another £10 quidco coming, and the above 3 bets for free. :clap:
