Let's look at the 2011 race – I followed my tips exactly, chose my horses and they came home in 1st and 2nd place, netting me a nice little packet!
I looked at every horse running, ruled out those younger than 9 and older than 10 years, looked at the weights they'd been given and and had a quick gander at the distances they had previously run. What I ended up with was a few terrific horses two of which did exactly as hoped – Ballabriggs came 1st with Oscar Time in 2nd 2011 Grand National.
I plan on doing the same thing this year and my tip is to put aside the odds, it's such a difficult race that luck is as much a part of it than anything and you can't put odds on that!
Luck is as much a part of it than anything and you can't put odds on that! You should also go with your gut instinct. I told anybody who would listen that Ballabriggs was going to win despite the fact that he wasn't that well known and and there didn't appear to be much fuss about him before the race. My family and friends listened and backed him, some got on the action at 20/1 – as you can imagine they were all very happy!
On an even happier little note – for five years in a row I have managed to pick two of the first four home!
