    Young Master
    Saphir Du Rheu

    Got them both at 20/1 yesterday but since odds have dropped on one to 16 & others gone to 22.
    They're my 2 picks.

    Saphir Du Rheu for me as well. Backed him in the Gold Cup to no avail, but the last time I did that and didn't back the same horse in the National, Many Clouds romped it and I missed out on a decent payday.

    In theory, I have a 1 in 5 chance of winning.

    But I never win the GN :joyful:

    On a nice note all 40 horses were safe and sound in the cooling area at Aintree.

    Thankfully none this year, that makes it 5 years now. That is just the National though.

    My Granddads name was Arthur. My sister text me to ask if I had it. Put a few quid on just before the race. I was out on the piss. Then she text me to say it had won :smuggrin:

    It was my Dad's 100th birthday a few days ago (he's dead now), and his name was Arthur.
    Bollocks Dad! I didn't back it!!!!
