    Going by names alone, my 3 are;

    Imperial Commander
    Teaforthree
    forpadydeplasterer (the name alone is worthy of a punt!)

    Well I had heard that he'd fallen and to be put down. However, this info came from Mrs Grumpy Old Man, and as usual, proved to be 100% accurate in every way except for the name of the horse. It was actually Battlefront who has been put down, the confusion arising because he was being ridden by the jockey who is due to ride Sea Bass in the National.

    It's OK, I'm used to this, we have been married 28 years.

    National needs a horse that can jump for 4 miles, the classier the better, i:e Imperial Commander / Seabass / Colbeart Stn. I'll side with Imp Commander as he's the classiest out there by a long way, if he stay's up he's got a decent chance.

    No Sandra, no winner for me, the only place I had was teaforthree. My "dead cert" was Imperial Commander, which ended up having just 3 legs and didn't complete the course along with forpadydeplasterer.

    Next year I am going to give my stake to charity, rather than my bookies rolls royce fund.

    No winners for me, I had tea for three on an each way and my mrs had rare bod on each way so she did alright due to paddy power offering the extra each way place...

    I picked about 5/6 horses and like I say, only tea for three came in. :(
