    Haven't had a bet for years. Too many things you can bet on now from how many hairs on a horses tail
    to who will fall at which fence . Now a waste of time and money you always hear when punters win never how much they have lost.

    Turns out Annie found out race was on just before start, she managed to get a bet on via Internet, would seem her brother who died a few years back allways had a bet on the National and since it would have been his birthday today she decided to put a bet on, his name was Desmond (Des) hence the two horses she picked,,, tenner down the tube...


    12th. Baie Des Iles 16-1 (Ms Katie Walsh)


    6th fence
    Houblon Des Obeaux 25-1 (Charlie Deutsch) - fell

    Once a bloody year have a little flutter and get " call yourself an animal lover if you encourage this cruelty".  FFS So I just backed out.  I wanted to tell them that we lived directly opposite Peter Cundell's stables and Dick Hern's was a mile down the road and those bloody horses were treated like royalty. And like cyclists they were a menace on the roads. Angry3
