One early bet for me ahead of the weights next week is I Just Know EW @150/1 and FIVE PLACES with bet365. Jumps well - stays well - and is improving , easy win last time out has put him on a mark of 145 which will give him a nice racing weight if he gets there in good health. Looks a massive price to me, personally I'd be around a 40/1 chance to win the race, and yet the place part here will be paying 37.5/1 and you also get an EXTRA PLACE. Trainer Sue Smith knows what it is like to win the big one having taken the National five years ago with Auroras Encore. It's a sporting play but huge value Win - Lose or Draw.

Selection : I Just Know ....... EW @150/1 ( bet365 )


:hope: Be Lucky :hope:

That's not a bad shout Ex... had a quick look through some of the trends and fits a lot of them... worth a cheeky little speculative bet now

Yay favourite time of year- weights come out National.
We study our lists to follow.

Not had chance study the first top 40 yet..
One horse certainly being doing is Gas Line Boy.
Around 25/1 mark but looking for slighly bigger.

Did well get round last year- hope be in the first four
this time round.
Postives
1 Got round last year.
2: 12 year olds do win the National :win: - as remembered
Amberleigh House one- got spelling right lol, as you remember
the horses you won on.
Also will have nice low weight, as crept in the top 40 list.

Know till the Festival plenty time sort our lists. :)
Love this time of year..

I did some research on this a few years back over the preceding 20 years or so and the average rating for '' number 40 '' was around the 138 mark .... as you have listed the last few years have seen that rise a bit, most likely down to the increased prizemoney attracting a higher class of animal..... I mentioned this in a recent blog, and for those that like a long range bet then it is essential to concentrate on horses rated mid 140's and above - hence my advice above and in the article...... I do hope you had that cheeky little EW play........ https://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=413651
