Given a clear round, this one time favourite for the Sun Alliance, Comply or Die, will be hard to beat.

:agree:

It's like a roulette machine this.

There seems to be a big slice of luck but I've put a few 2 e/w bets and will see what happens.

Backbeat as I wanted a big outsider, just in case
Dargent
Turku
Philson Run
Point Barrow
Comply or Die

Been reading lots of tips and guides and these seem reasonable, then again it could be Butlers Cabin or the Cloudy one

The whole sham reminds of why I don't bet on horses but as it's a big race thought best to have a bit of interest

like comply or die but john francome tipped it on the morning line:brickwall has he ever tipped a winner? for all the inside info he must get he never gives a decent tip:brickwall

with frankie winning his 1st ever derby last year can mccoy win his 1st ever national? will have a small wager just incase.

backbeat at a big price for a place:thumbsup:

Comply or Die for a number of reasons.

Here's my view...

Price seems to be drifting now on cloudy lane, I don't think it can last the trip plus there is still no real value in backing it. McCoy should win this sometime but not this year, Butler's Cabin won't cope with the hurdles too well. Hedgehunter must still have something in him or Ruby wouldn't be riding him again but I think he is just carrying too much weight, maybe an E/W shout. I'm backing Comply or Die, can definetely carry the trip and can jump well, also started using blinkers which should be beneficial. For an outside chance I'm going for Madison du Berl at 66/1, I'm a fan of Scudamore and although the horse is young it has lots of experience.

Used my 5 free bet in the daily record and put it on Hedgehunter to win. Always seems to do well here and knows the course. Also went 2 each way on No Full just for a wee bit excitement. Thats the thing with the Grand National, the strange bets are never far away. Fingers crossed.

I also had comply or die @ 10/1 to win. I also had Slim pickings each way so was an extra 25 towards the drinks kitty. That makes it 4 out of the last 5 years I have backed the winner. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
