In today’s Grand National, people can put their money where their mouth is, down the betting shop. Straws in the wind, you may say, but keep an eye out for the following Grand National contenders:
- No 5: Comply or Die 12/1
Winner last year, but out of form since
- No 10: Priests Leap 100/1
Solid Stayer — Interesting at a Big Price
thus the Parish Share?
- No 19: Parson’s Legacy 16/1
Will love this stamina test, but lacks pace
- No 21: Fundamentalist 150/1
Fell 3rd Fence last year. No Chance.
- No 31: Rambling Minster 10/1
Thorough stayer who is int he form of his life
Note there is only one “i” in the name...
- No 38: Idle Talk 66/1
Reported in great shape, but needs to improve to win
h/t Revds Colin Smith and Richard Watson, and the Daily Telegraph for the form guide.
