The 2018 Grand National, Saturday 5.15pm Aintree - £20 Best Tip Comment

Postby Zipster » Wed Apr 11, 2018 9:08 am

It's the 171st annual running of the Grand National this year and we have picked the nice easy 40 runner race for this weeks £20 best tip comment event.

OLBG will be offering a £20 cash prize for the best tip content added by a member on the Grand National due off at 5.15pm Saturday.

To qualify you must enter your tip and analysis in the Horse Racing tipping competition via the 'Make A Tip' menu -

The market for the event should be available for tipping later on Friday afternoon so make sure you get your tip on as early as possible to give it maximum exposure and only tips placed within the tipping competition will be considered, please do not post your tip comment as a reply on this forum thread.

The comments team will judge the best tip comment and will be looking for possible analysis to include :-

  • How will your pick take to the National fences? Have they got experience over them?
  • Has your pick got the stamina to see out the trip?
  • How will your pick handle the ground?
  • What's the record for the trainer in the Grand National?
  • What's the record for the jockey in the Grand National?
  • Plus any relevant information that you feel is key and can give readers that edge in following your tip and placing a bet.
The comments team will judge the tip comments before the race starts so all tips (win and Each Way) are considered and it's the excellent content analysis we are judging so not just winning tips and will announce the £20 spot prize winner on this thread and the cash will be paid directly into the winners OLBG account.

We intend to run a £20 "best comment" competition on one event each week and to encourage more people to get involved the £20 prize can only be won once by any member in a calendar month.

Good luck with your tips and enjoy the race.

A big thank you to all members who added Grand National tips, we had over 240 tip comments on the big race and a really tough choice in selecting a winner.

A very 'long' short list including Robmull, The Market Man, spurs1967 and many many more...

This week's £20 cash prize winner is sixthformer -

Bless The Wings
(Each Way)

"Milansbar and Chase The Spud can be unreliable but have valid claims. Bless The Wings is ostensibly the outsider of the three Gordon Elliott runners but appeals at the current prices. He is on a fair mark judged on his second in the Cross Country chase at Cheltenham last year behind eventual National second Cause Of Causes. Jack Kennedy is a good jockey booking. Bless The Wings is a reliable jumper who, from one perspective, was just freshened up in the Irish National twelve days ago. He's a fair each-way play."

Well done to sixthformer and thanks again to all members who added Grand National tips.

Well done sixth former, if I had tipping skills like that at school I could be on a desert island sipping a mojito right now, instead of watching emmerdale catch up!

Thanks as always to OLBG and those who took the time to read through the tips
