I'm going to keep my cards close to my chest for now, but out of the ones I've covered so far one certainly does stick out... at a price which I think will half by the day. There's a lot more to look at though...

Very interesting race over in Ireland today featuring 5 National entries;

Bob Lingo
Call The Police
Forpadydeplasterer
Ninetieth Minute
Magnanimity

Call The Police won as 5/6f and I think its safe to say that that result over 2m 4f will have done his chances of getting a decent weight no favours whatsoever for the big one!

Worth watching the race a couple of times for clues.

CALL THE POLICE
Another good run, but would still need a win over 3 miles before any consideration.
ORAGANISEDCONFUSION
Real shame, seemed to be travelling well last year before being unseated. Would of had plenty of support.

Don t for get Seabass if right spelling,
That bit like Call The Police, has nt won longer distance like 3m.
And Seabass got placed in the National last year.

Yes forgot bout seabass.
Think was too busy watching Neptune win, and go in history
after that long time a Grey not won national.
So Grey jinx over in national now.. :hope:

So distance doesnt matter now Seabass bout 20/1 in places,
mean you dot have to win a longer race..
So Call at he Police could fit that bill now,who knows might
go for Cheltenham, maybe he could be a gold cup horse one year to.

Hi Andy,
Apologies for missing your question.
Lord knows who will drop out/run at Cheltenham etc. It's all these glorious imponderables which make this such fun/torture.

I just love the 'national despite it being such a frustrating race for me. Since I was a child after seeing "National Velvet" I was hooked.
My first bet was Purple Silk in 62 or 63. Looked all over the winner until caught near the line by Team Spirit.
My luck has continued like that all down the years. I thought Sunnyhill Boy was a good thing. At the finish last year I thought he'd won as did the commentary esp. when the cameras went to Johnjo and Sunny's groom celebrating.
I've had some good wins and the occasional forecast and some ew bets at huge prices so no complaints, plus hours of fun dissecting the form etc.
Thanks again for all your work.

Owner Graham Wylie say's it's highly likely he'll run in world hurdle then grand national.
