The Grand National: Put Your Money Where Your Horse’s Mouth Is And Then Look In It For A Gift..Or Something Like That…

 

It’s Grand National Day tomorrow and as far back as I can remember it’s always been a horse race I would watch and also place a bet. Which horse will I back this year..?

I’ve never really been very lucky when it comes to gambling in horse racing although I have had a couple of winners in the past. How do I pick my horse? Do I study the form, the odds and all that jazz? No, I simply go by the names. It used to be if the name was anything cat related then I would choose that horse.

Nowadays, every Saturday I will check the day’s races and look for four horses that have similar words to Greg, Steve, Bingo & Disco and one of these days there will be four horses that have them so I will place an accumulator bet and become rich beyond my wildest dreams!

Until then, what horse am I backing tomorrow? This time, there is no cat-based logic but there is some “logic”. If you follow my music blog you will know that the recent winner of The Voice lives in the village where I went to school which is 3 miles from where I grew up and it’s name is Alva

There is a horse running in The Grand National called Alvarado – it’s a sign, surely?

It’s current odds are 20/1 so my betting limit is £30 and I usually bet “each way” meaning if it finishes anything up to fourth I get some winnings. Wish me luck!

What about you? Do you bet on The Grand National and if so what horse are you backing?

For more randomness take a look at my Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts…
